"Most likely what was involved, this is conjecture, there was probably some endotoxin problems with that fungal activity they found. It could have been from a contaminated product. It could have been from a component they used that was already pre-approved. We don't know that yet," says Dr. Binkley. "It does affect me. It damages all of compounding's reputation that we're doing something illegal in the bathroom sink or something of that approach, where in fact this is an industry that's made up of very, very conscientious pharmacists that want to do a very good job."
Compounding pharmacies are not regulated by the FDA, but all of the medicines used in them are regulated by the FDA. Each state, including Kentucky and Tennessee, have a regulatory body that oversees these pharmacies. We will keep you up to date on this growing health scare as soon as any information becomes available. Any overnight updates will be covered by TENNESSEE MORNINGS.

House passes 2-year moratorium on dam barriers
May 21, 2013 19:12 GMT
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The U.S. House has passed legislation that would put a two-year moratorium on an Army Corps of Engineers plan to erect barriers to prevent people from fishing below dams on the Cumberland River.
U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield heralded final passage of the Freedom to Fish Act on Tuesday. Whitfield was a leading proponent of the measure in the House.
The bill, introduced by Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was co-sponsored by Sens. Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Bob Corker of Tennessee.
Whitfield said the bill thwarts, at least temporarily, an effort to "take away some of the best fishing in Kentucky." Passage of the measure, Whitfield said, allows time to work out a permanent solution.
The measure now goes to President Barack Obama for consideration.
