Lawmakers Issue Subpoenas in Connection with Meningitis Outbreak

Director of pharmacy targeted

|

House lawmakers have issued a subpoena for the director of the Massachusetts pharmacy linked to the deadly meningitis outbreak.

The subpoena comes after Barry Cadden, co-founder of New England Compounding Center, indicated through his lawyer that he would not voluntarily attend a congressional hearing scheduled for Nov. 14, the Energy and Commerce Committee said Tuesday.

A message sent to Cadden's lawyer seeking comment was not immediately returned.
