A 14th person has filed a lawsuit in Boston against Framingham-based New England Compounding Center, which is linked to a meningitis outbreak that has killed 36 people and sickened 541.
The Boston Herald reported that a 31-year-old woman said she suffered temporary hearing loss and a painfully bloated face from an injection she received this summer at one of Alabama’s largest hospitals.
The suit is the first from Alabama.
The CDC is expected to release updated outbreak numbers today.
Ameridose has not been implicated in the outbreak.
