After its sister company produced a vaccine that spread fungal meningitis to hundreds of people around the US, drug manufacturer Ameridose has voluntarily recalled its entire product line. The FDA requested that Ameridose close down and improve its sterility testing processes. The move could create a shortage of drugs used in surgery and other applications, particularly succinylcholine and sodium bicarbonate injections. The fungal meningitis outbreak has so far led to 368 known cases. A civil lawsuit is pending in that case.
