"Twenty-two Michigan residents have died since 2012, including three people who received steroid injections in Indiana."

State health officials have confirmed two more Michigan deaths linked to tainted steroids, an outbreak that began last year.
They are a 64-year-old woman and a 75-year-old man, both from Livingston County. Twenty-two Michigan residents have died since 2012, including three people who received steroid injections in Indiana.
Fungal meningitis has been linked to contaminated steroids produced by a Massachusetts pharmacy and shipped to four Michigan clinics. Patients who became ill received injections for neck or back pain.
There have been more than 260 cases in Michigan related to the steroids. Not all people developed meningitis but had other problems.
