Even after a national recall and meningitis scare there have been no reported cases in Mendocino county, according to Heather Van Housen, patient care executive at Ukiah Valley Medical Center.

This was in response to the voluntary medication recall initiated by the manufacturer, the New England Compound Center. The medication was administered during a procedure at the Outpatient Pavilion at Ukiah Valley Medical Center.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) there are currently no reported cases of meningitis related to the medication recall in California. The CDC urges those that have questions about the recall to call their information hotline at 1(800) 232-4636.
