About this Deal

Once again, the expansive recall of the blood pressure medication continues. Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited just announced they're including 36 lots of Losartan potassium Tablets USP and 68 lots of Losartan Potassium/Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP. Why? The detection of more cancer-causing impurities.

See the latest list of recalled medication here.

Since last summer, drug companies have recalled numerous lots of blood pressure-lowering medication (valsartan, losartan and irbesartan) due to potential cancer-causing impurities.

Patients taking the latest recalled medication should contact their health care provider for an alternative treatment prior to returning the recalled medication. Furthermore, patients should also continue to take the recalled medication until they receive an alternative.

I don't know what my friends & families are taking, but I did the same. I really don't like that 10-page long list.
