Blood pressure meds recalled over contamination concern

Voluntary recall issued for blood-pressure drugs over substance linked to cancer

The 80 lots are comprised of Amlodipine Valsartan Tablets, Valsartan Tablets and Valsartan HCTZ tablets.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has advised this precautionary recall because of possible N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) contamination.
