In this Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012, photo, a TV news photographer shoots the facade of the New England Compounding Center, which has since been linked to a recent deadly meningitis outbreak, in Framingham, Mass. According to a congressional investigation released Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, federal health inspectors wanted to shut down the New England Compounding Center, until it cleaned up its operations in 2002. Nearly 440 people have been sickened by contaminated steroid shots distributed by New England Compounding Center, and more than 32 deaths have been reported since the outbreak began in September, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
