Pennsylvania health officials say the investigation related to a deadly meningitis outbreak has expanded to more than 150 facilities in PA. Previously, only two health clinics in the state were believed to have received contaminated steroid injections. The state health department is currently in the process of notifying affected patients.

Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration now recommends that health officials monitor all patients who received an injectable product after May 21 from the Massachusetts-based pharmacy responsible for the outbreak.

To date, the meningitis outbreak has caused almost 300 illnesses and over 20 deaths in at least 16 states. One case of fungal meningitis has been reported in Pennsylvania.
