Ameridose has laid off most workers and recalled its products, though none has been found to be contaminated. The company supplies hospitals nationwide with injectable drugs, including pain killers and blood thinners.

Loftus said the health department has been working with hospitals about potential shortages from the shutdown and will propose emergency regulations for the Public Health Council next week to allow hospitals to share safe compounded drugs.

The closure agreement also includes Alaunus Pharmaceutical, a wholesale distributer in Framingham that shares corporate ownership with Ameridose.
