Why is the FDA not releasing the name of the manufacturer of the Meningitis laced Steroid shots?

If it was tanted Peanut butter or eggs they drop the name in a second. What is different here? I am trying not to be a consipiracy theorist but I can only imagine that someone needs to sell their shares before releasing the name possibly?

And when they stay Steroid, don't they mean what we typically call it? Cortizone?
And why do they not refer it by that name?

Rare US Meningitis Outbreak Grows; 4 Dead, 22 Sick - ABC News

The manufacturer is named, and the product is a form of cortisone.

The plant has closed and suspected lots of the product have been recalled.

New England Compounding Center does not actually make drugs. It mixes customized products. It is a privately owned pharmacy, so no one will be rushing to sell stock.

The steroid does not contain meningitis, that is the disease people develop when something inflames the meninges. The steroid contained a fungus.

Exactly why injections are never exactly good -- there is always a possibility of contamination by something harmful.

Always possible, but very rare.

Nonsense, the likelihood of contamination is extraordinarily low.....which is why this is making such news.

Compared to the number of corticosteroid injections given the complication of infection is so low as to be negligible.
