Medical Product Methylprednisolone acetate connected to Marion County wrongful death

A day after the Gainesville Sun ran an article on fungal meningitis occurrences in Florida it is reporting today on the wrongful death of another man who had lived in Marion County. This death is reportedly connected to the medical product methylprednisolone acetate, the steroid injected into patients backs for pain relief. The news article reports this 78 year old man received a shot August 28, and began reporting symptoms October 6. The article goes on to report that the elderly seem to be more often suffering from the meningitis.
