A pharmacy that opened in Miami in 2017 and later closed due to an overdose of fentanyl has been shuttered for good.
The Dillons Pharmacy in the South Florida city of Miami-Dade closed its doors to the public in August.
The pharmacy, located at 561 E. Main St., had been operating as a private business since it was purchased by the state of Florida in 2016.
The Dillards pharmacy has more than 1,000 locations nationwide.
The pharmacy closed due in part to a fentanyl epidemic in the U.S.
The FDA said the Dillys Pharmacy had reported a fentanyl death at the pharmacy in June of this year.
The company’s Facebook page had stated that the death was due to fentanyl.
The closure of the Dills pharmacy comes amid a nationwide crisis of fentanyl overdose deaths.
Fentanyl is a powerful opioid that has been used as an alternative to painkillers and sedatives.
In the United States, fentanyl is often prescribed for a wide range of conditions, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, and chronic pain.
Fluoride has also been implicated in the death of at least four people since January.
A total of 17 people have died from the drug since November of 2016.
