Steroid injection recall questions

one of my kids got stung by a bee and had a reaction (swollen hand). so the next day our dr. gave her a steroid shot for the reaction along with a prescribed steroid. then three days later i read where steroid shots were recalled in some states due to contaminated shots with meningitis (i think these were for back pain/epidural and the recalls were for mostly pain clinics). our dr. said the type of shot she got was for an allergic reaction but i am still worried. wouldnt our dr. have been notified (along with telling patients) that they received some of these shots? i believe the recall was issued on sept. 26, she got her shot on oct. 1. any insight or more info. or advice would be appreciated. i know its probably unlikely, but the worried parent in me continues.
