Cincinnati clinic received recalled epidural steroid injection

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Some healthcare facilities in Ohio received a recalled epidural steroid injection, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

FDA notified the Ohio Department of Heath about four clinics which received the recalled medication.  The Cincinnati Pain Management clinic on Cornell Road along with BKC Pain Specialists and Marion Pain Clinic in Marion and Ortho-Spine Rehab Center in Dublin each received the recalled medication.

"It's very important that we reach out to those who had the treatment because symptoms are subtle and can be overlooked," said Dr. Ted Wymyslo, Director of ODH. "As we look harder, it is possible that we will uncover cases. We want to get these patients connected with treatment to prevent more serious consequences."

Patients who received a steroid injection and are experiencing symptoms, such as a headache, fever, neck stiffness or pain at the injection site, should call their healthcare provider to see if they received the recalled product.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration are investigating cases of meningitis in patients who had received epidural steroid injection. The contaminated product may be the source of the infection; however an investigation is ongoing to determine the exact source.
