Two more drugs from a specialty pharmacy linked to a meningitis outbreak are now being investigated, U.S. health officials said, as they urged doctors to contact patients who got any kind of injection from the company.

The New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Massachusetts, has been under scrutiny since last month, when a rare fungal form of meningitis was linked to its steroid shots used mostly for back pain.
