The FBI has launched an investigation into a fungal meningitis outbreak that sickened 751 people nationwide, killing 64, the Tennessean reports.

Authorities are blaming the outbreak on contaminated steroids manufactured by a Massachusetts-based New England Compounding Center and used in spinal injections as pain relief.

Joan Peay of Nashville met with an FBI agent after she came down with fungal meningitis in 2012. “They are creating a criminal case against New England Compounding Center,” Peay said. “They are just at the point now where they are interviewing patients.”

She was questioned about how she contracted the illness and how it impacted her.
