- Eye Infections linked to Troubled Pharmacy
According to CBS News, federal health official have confirmed 33 cases of a rare fungal eye infection across 7 states. All of the patients had undergone some type of eye procedure, including surgery or injections. The CDC reports that 23 people had some degree of vision loss after the infection and 24 people had to undergo another eye surgery.
Health officials traced many of the cases to a dye and an injection including triamcinolone and other products from Francks Compounding Lab in Ocala. The Food and Drug Administration tested unopened bottles and unused syringes of the dye collected, finding several bacterial and fungal species.
California health officials first notified the CDC after several patients developed eye infections in March. That same month Francks pharmacy recalled dye lots and triamcinolone.
The pharmacy was under scrutiny in 2009 after 21 polo horses died before a championship match. The horses had been given a cocktail of minerals and vitamins compounded by Francks pharmacy. Their deaths were blamed on an overdose of minerals.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.

Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
