According to the Boston Globe, the federal government has seized more than $18 million from bank accounts tied to the owners of a now-defunct Framingham compounding pharmacy blamed for a deadly meningitis outbreak, prosecutors said on Tuesday.

"In a statement, U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz’s office announced the seizures from accounts connected to Barry J. Cadden, head pharmacist of the shuttered New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Carla Conigliaro, the company’s majority shareholder, and her husband, Douglas A. Conigliaro.

 

The trio are among 14 people who face criminal charges in US District Court in Boston in a sweeping indictment linked to the pharmacy, which has been blamed for producing tainted drugs that killed 64 people and sickened hundreds more in 20 states."
