The number of deaths from meningitis, linked to tainted steroid shots, is growing.
Thursday, the FDA released an updated list of clinics that received potentially contaminated products from the center where the tainted shots were created.
Several East Texas facilities are on that list.
The CDC says the worst of this meningitis outbreak is over. Still, the number of deaths continues to climb.
As of Friday, 25 people had died from the disease and there were 338 reported cases nationwide.
On Friday, there was only one reported case in Texas.
The highest number of cases is in Michigan, where more than 82 people have been affected.
Tainted medicine and products causing this outbreak have been traced back to the New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts.
Several facilities in the Trinity Mother Frances Health System were on the FDA list of facilities that received potentially tainted products from that Massachusetts center.
Trinity Mother Frances says 10 of their patients were affected by the recall but everything is under control.
"Fortunately, none of those patients have reported any problems since the initial announcement. They are being consulted and, if necessary, they can come in and talk to their doctor, but right now everyone seems to be doing ok, " said John Moore, public information officer at Trinity Mother Frances Health Systems.
Trinity Mother Frances has pulled every product they received from the tainted pharmacy off of their shelves.
Longview regional medical center has done the same and released this statement: "It is important to note that at this time there has been no illness or infection linked to any of the NECC produced medications that were in our inventory."
The FDA says this particular form of meningitis is not contagious.
The symptoms to look out for include fever, nausea and altered mental status.
Officials say they found numerous sanitary issues at the New England compounding center during a preliminary investigation, including problems with equipment used for sterilization.
