Concerned citizens may have gotten a bit more than they bargained for when calling to inquire about the meningitis outbreak stemming from contaminated steroid injections.
Florida Governor Rick Scott inadvertently gave the number to an adult phone service instead of the meningitis hotline that he intended during a press conference this past Tuesday.
Oops! How’s that for a surprise?
Scott was trying to provide the contact info for the toll-free hotline, and mixed up a few numbers, a spokesman for Gov. Scott says. Fortunately, his team was alerted quickly, and gave out the correct information shortly after the gaffe.
