Losartan Recall Is Newest Blood Pressure Medication with Cancer Risk

The FDA announced another blood pressure medication recall over cancer concerns from the impurity NDEA. It’s the third recall in recent months. This time it is a Losartan recall.

About NDEA

NDEA can exist naturally in certain foods and drinking water. However, it can also be in air pollution and industrial processes. Many industry materials also use it along with gasoline as a stabilizer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer warns that it can cause cancer in humans. Now, the FDA has pinpointed that NDEA in these heart medications was made by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceutical Company Co. Ltd. The FDA thus placed the Chinese company on an import alert at the end of September. This means all of its active pharmaceutical products and finished products will not be permitted to enter the United States. The FDA made that decision after an inspection of the facility.

New Losartan Recall

This Losartan recall involves 100 milligram/25 milligram Losartan tablets with the lot number JB8912 and expiration date of June 2020. The manufacturer did not distribute the affected medication prior to Oct. 8, 2018.

The FDA recalled two other other blood pressure drugs (irbesartan and valsartan) over the last few months. The American Heart Association in January announced new guidelines. Scarily, these new measures lowered the threshold for high blood pressure. Thus, the organization added 30 million U.S. adults now taking high blood pressure medications like Losartan.

Seek Justice

Many people after taking recalled heart medications are horrified to learn that their blood pressure meds could have caused their liver cancer. Thus, it is important to seek justice. These potentially cancer-causing drugs have been on the market for over 5 years. This is unacceptable. Therefore, you should hold these manufacturers accountable.

We want to help send a message that this is not acceptable. If a dangerous product harmed you, we will be your advocate. Additionally, we have the experience necessary to successfully litigate these cases.
