(NECN) - A Massachusetts company with the same owners as the pharmacy linked to that meningitis outbreak will remain closed through the end of the year.

Ameridose agreed with state regulators to remain closed. It first closed for inspection in October after tainted steroids from its sister company, the New England Compounding Center, were linked to the outbreak.
Ameridose has laid off most of its workers and recalled its products. None have been found to be contaminated.
The FDA has said its inspection found numerous potential sources of contamination at Ameridose. The company says it will work to address those issues.
