Meningitis outbreak getting worse

The CDC said the deadly fungal meningitis outbreak is getting worse.

At least 15 people have died and hundreds have gotten sick.

The FDA is now looking at two other medications made by a Massachusetts pharmacy.

One is a heart transplant treatment and the other is an epidural injection.

The FDA said doctors should stop using all products made by the New England compounding center.

"Out of abundance of caution, any drug that's been injected. They think that  doctors should follow up with those patients and make sure there are no problems," said Dr. Richard Besser, ABC News Chief Medical Editor.

On Tuesday the CDC confirmed two more cases in Indian bringing the total to 30.

Michigan has reported 43 cases of fungal meningitis.
