Houston Medical Center announced Friday it is one of the 10 central Georgia health facilities to have received drugs from the Massachusetts company that made contaminated steroids.
However, according to a news release, Houston Medical only purchased a "small quantity" of potassium phosphate and sodium phosphate from the New England Compounding Company. That was in September and October of 2011.
Houston Medical CEO Cary Martin says neither medication has been linked to any infections.
In a Thursday news release , Terri Harper of Spa Medical said that they received a recall notice. Harper said the company has ordered products from NECC in the past but did not have any in stock at present and never used injectable products.
The Forsyth Street Ambulatory Surgery Center was the first known facility linked to NECC.
The Food and Drug Administration has asked local officials to contact a total of 10 central Georgia health facilities about a recall of drugs they received from NECC.

Jennifer Jones, spokeswoman for the North Central Health District, said they are contacting the 10 facilities. But she won't release that list until each has been notified.
As 13WMAZ reported two weeks ago, the Forsyth Street Ambulatory Surgery Center distributed tainted steroids from the New England Compounding Center to 189 patients.

Jones said that no illnesses have been reported from that Macon clinic, and that they are one of the 10 facilities on the FDA's recall list.
The list of facilities came from the FDA late Tuesday, Jones said, but the federal agency's "talking points" didn't arrive until Wednesday.
She said the other nine facilities will be notified by the end of the day Thursday.
Check back with 13WMAZ for details as we get them.
