NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The state Health Department has named the clinics in Tennessee receiving suspect medication from a Newbern pharmacy.

Vials of injectable methylprednisolone acetate may be linked to skin infections in Illinois and North Carolina. The drug is the same one that caused an outbreak of deadly fungal meningitis last year, but so far no cases of meningitis have been linked to this batch of medicine.

Three of the clinics receiving the suspect medication are in Jackson. They are Quality Care, Getwell Family Clinic and Walker Pain Management Center. The other clinics receiving the medication are Pinnacle Pain Management Clinic, in Union City; First Choice Clinic, in Dyersburg; Christian Care Clinic, in Newbern; and Axis Medical Clinic, in White House.
