    Issues

    Valsartan and other generic angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB’s), which are used to treat hypertension (which effects 1 in 3 Americans) have been found to be contaminated with an impurity called NNitrosodimehtylamine (NDMA). NDMA is a well-known carcinogen and exposure to such leads to significant risk of liver cancer, liver failure, stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, bowel cancer, and kidney cancer.

    FDA Warning

    July 13, 2018 FDA issues its largest Class 1 Recall ever. More that 2,000,000 Americans received a recall letter due to the possible NDMA contamination of their generic valsartan ARB. There have been numerous follow-on recalls by the FDA as well as similar associated announcements by the WHO, Health Canada, European Medical Association (EMA), Hong Kong Dept. of Health
