Our Minnesota law firm is helping dozens of people like you who had an epidural injection for back pain that contained methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) made by New England Compounding Center (NECC). You trusted the clinic to use safe medication, but NECC had a history of sanitation problems, and the FDA has found that it was selling its drugs, including MPA, illegally.
Three specific lots of NECC MPA were contaminated with fungus, and over 14,000 people like you were injected with this toxic and deadly steroid. Over 30 people have died in the United States.
Only 6 clinics in Minnesota received the implicated NECC MPA: Medical Advanced Pain Specialists (MAPS) in Edina, Fridley, Maple Grove and Shakopee and the Minnesota Surgery Center (MSC) in Edina and Maple Grove. Why did these clinics purchase drugs from NECC? Did these clinics purchase the NECC MPA in bulk? Attorney Fred Pritzker and his Bad Bug Law Team are gathering the evidence needed to answer these and more questions for their clients. Fred and his team can also help you find out the truth and get the compensation you deserve.
You can contact Fred for a free consultation here. He is accepting cases involving one or more of the following:
- Fungal meningitis (both Aspergillus and Exserohilum)
- Osteomyelitis (bone infection)

- Septic Arthritis
- Spinal tap (lumbar puncture) to test for meningitis
Most of the cases of fungal meningitis involve the fungus Exserohilum rostratum. Fred is representing one of the few people sickened by the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus. Our Aspergillus meningitis client shared her story with The St. Paul Pioneer Press and The Guardian.
