CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

More than 300 people have now contracted meningitis from tainted steroid injections.

The Centers for Disease Control announced ten new cases Tuesday and lists 17 states that have now been affected. The CDC says the number of deaths linked to the outbreak stands at 23.

The injections tied to the outbreak come from a manufacturer in Massachusetts, which has since pulled its drugs off the market.
