Indiana has recorded its seventh death from an outbreak of fungal meningitis that's been connected to injections of a recalled back pain medication.

State Department of Health spokesman Ken Severson said Friday he doesn't have any information about the seventh death. The health department says the state has registered 68 cases of fungal meningitis linked to the injections. That's up from 59 cases two weeks ago.

Clinics in South Bend, Elkhart, Columbus, Evansville, Fort Wayne and Terre Haute received tainted steroids traced to the New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass.
