INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Attorney General's Office confirms they have filed a petition to suspend the pharmacy license of the company involved in the tainted steroid injections from Massachusetts.

The suspension will prohibit the New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass. from operating in Indiana. The suspension is in effect for 90 days.

Indiana now has 43 cases of fungal meningitis linked to injections of a recalled back pain medication connected to the New England Compounding Center.

The Indiana State Department of Health reported two additional cases Thursday. The number of deaths remains at three, and Elkhart County's health officer has said all three have been linked to that county east of South Bend and bordering Michigan.

The health department has said six Indiana clinics received the tainted steroids, including the OSMC Outpatient Surgery Center in Elkhart. The tainted medication also went to clinics in Columbus, Evansville, Fort Wayne, South Bend and Terre Haute.
