(KCEN) -- New alarming information was released today about that deadly fungal meningitis outbreak.
Documents reveal it took the Food and Drug Administration nearly two years to issue a warning letter.
That's after finding problems at the company at the center of the national fungal meningitis outbreak.
The New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts is blamed for shipping contaminated steroid injections.
Nearly 500 patients developed fungal meningitis. At least 34 died.
Now a Reuters investigation shows the FDA ended an inspection of the NECC in January of 2005.
Regulators found what they call serious concerns at the facility, but did not send a warning letter to the company until December of 2006.
