(CNN) — Fourteen people have been arrested in connection with the deadly 2012 national outbreak of fungal meningitis linked to steroid injections distributed by a compounding pharmacy in Massachusetts, a law enforcement source told CNN on Wednesday.

The owners of the pharmacy, the New England Compounding Center, were among those arrested.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tied 751 cases, across 20 states, to the steroid injections. A total of 64 people died as a result.
