The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced a voluntary recall of several medications containing valsartan due to an impurity found in some of the products. Please review the FDA’s press release for details about this recall. Because this medicine is used to treat serious medical conditions, the FDA recommends that patients continue to take their medicine until they receive replacement product or an alternate medicine to treat their condition. If you are taking medication containing valsartan, please contact your pharmacy to see if this recall affects you.
