Nearly 700 People Sickened by Tainted Steroids

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (WKRC) -- The New England Compounding Center has reached a settlement with victims of a major meningitis outbreak.

Attorneys involved with the matter say the 100-million dollar fund will compensate the victims and pay off creditors.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the outbreak was linked to tainted steroid injections from the Massachusetts-based center.  Nearly 700 people were sickened and dozens of deaths were reported.

The plan is now awaiting a judge's approval.
