Nov 12 (Reuters) - U.S. inspectors found bugs, a flying bird and other unsterile conditions at Ameridose LLC, an affiliate of the New England Compounding Center at the heart of the deadly meningitis outbreak.

A report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration detailed a list of failures at Ameridose that also included a failure to appropriately classify patient complaints and the use of "vague, canned language" when describing adverse reactions to its drugs.

The company said it is in the process of preparing a full response to the FDA.
