Voluntary recall of two blood pressure medications

Courtesy of CNN:

A recall for blood pressure drugs has been expanded.

Torrent Pharmaceuticals says two of its blood pressure medications were found to have trace amounts of a potentially cancer-causing impurity.

The voluntary recall affects Losartan Potassium tablets usp and Losartan Potassium-Hydrochlorothiazide tablets.

This recall is related the Valsartan recall that has been expanded multiple times since July, when separate lots of blood pressure medications from different companies were pulled from pharmacy shelves.

The medications, Valsaratan, Losartan or Irbesartan, all contained trace amounts of these impurities that pose a cancer-risk to users.
