Health Canada expands recall on blood pressure medication

22 Août, 2018, 17:15 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

On August 9, The Food and Drug Administration announced Westminster Pharmaceuticals, LLC voluntarily recalled all lots, with an expiry of Levothyroxine and Liothyronine, common Thyroid Tablets, 15mg, 30 mg, 60, mg, 90, mg, and 120 mg to wholesale level.

The FDA has expanded the recall of blood pressure medications due to the detection of impurities in an active ingredient.

Health Canada says eight valsartan medications are being added to the initial recall for drugs used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure.

The jury found him guilty for failing to report his overseas bank holdings in just one of the four years cited. The judge declared a mistrial on 10 other counts after jurors couldn't reach a verdict on them.

Health Canada also said it would be assessing "how much NDMA patients may have been exposed to and for how long", noting that the agency believes the impurity began occurring when Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals changed its manufacturing processes in 2012. NDMA has been linked to cancer.

Patients are advised to continue to take their medications unless they have been told to stop by their health-care provider. Pharmacists may be able to provide a product not affected by the recall, or doctors may prescribe a different medication for your conditions. The products subject to recall are packed in 100 count bottles, and one should look at the products NDCS, product description, lot numbers, and expiration dates.
