Valsartan Recall:Tainted drugs: Ex-FDA inspector warns of dangers in U.S. meds made in China, India

This news in from NBC:

Since last summer, drug companies have announced a total of 45 recalls of generic lifesaving blood pressure medications. They include certain versions of valsartan and two other blood pressure drugs, losartan and irbesartan, as well as other blood pressure medications that contain the recalled drugs in their formulations. The raw ingredients were all traced to overseas manufacturing sites where drugs can be processed at a lower cost than at U.S. facilities.

If you were taking Valsartan and have learned of the recall, talk with your doctors. If you are worried that a cancer diagnosis may be related to your use of the medication contact us.
