Mylan to recall all batches of the drug valsartan blood pressure in the US


Mylan said on Tuesday issuing a voluntary nationwide reminder of all batches of the drug valsartan blood pressure, by expanding a recall & # 39; selected lots started two weeks ago.

The drug company said it was recalling 104 additional lots "from & # 39; abundance of caution" after it was found that products containing valsartan contain traces of & # 39; impurity likely to cause cancer.

The finished products, which were manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and Mylan Laboratories distributed in the United States between March 2017 and November 2018, the company said in a statement.

The company's shares fell 2 percent to $ 33.40 after the announcement.
