WASHINGTON - House lawmakers have issued a subpoena for the director of the pharmacy linked to the deadly meningitis outbreak, after he reportedly declined to appear before Congress next week.

The Energy and Commerce Committee says that Barry Cadden, co-founder of New England Compounding Center, indicated through his lawyer that he would not attend a hearing scheduled for Nov. 14. A message sent to Cadden's lawyer was not immediately returned.

More than 400 people have been sickened by contaminated steroid shots distributed by the compounding pharmacy, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thirty deaths have been reported.
