LANSING (WKZO) -- A South Lyon pharmacy is being penalized by the state for distributing a tainted solution to Henry Ford Hospital.

Thursday, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced the Specialty Medicine Compounding Pharmacy will be fined 100-thousand dollars and its licence has been permanently suspended. The company's owner, Kenny Walkup junior has also had his pharmacist's licence revoked for three years.

The state began an investigation into the pharmacy last October when mold particles were found in what was supposed to be a sterile dextrose solution that was sent to the hospital.
