2 Michigan deaths reported in meningitis outbreak
Officials say there are at least eight confirmed cases of meningitis in Michigan, including two deaths.
The Michigan Department of Community Health said Saturday it won't be able to release any details about the deaths until after the weekend.
The meningitis outbreak has been linked to a steroid produced by a specialty pharmacy in Massachusetts. The steroid has been recalled, and officials have been scrambling to notify anyone who may have been injected with it.
At least four places in Michigan received shipments of the medication: Michigan Neurosurgical Institute in Grand Blanc; Michigan Pain Specialists in Brighton; Neuromuscular & Rehabilitation in Traverse City; and Southeast Michigan Surgical Hospital in Warren.
