Over the past several months, dozens of blood pressure medications used to treat high blood pressue have been recalled. Federal investigators have discovered potentially cancer-causing impurities in them. The Public Interest Research Group just reported the 75th recall of blood pressure medications since the problem first appeared (That’s right, 75 blood pressure medications)!
These common prescription drugs include valsartan, losartan, and irbesartan in different combinations and from different manufacturers.
“After 75 recalls it is clear more aggressive action is needed,” Public Interest Research Group consumer watchdog Adam Garber said in a release. “Americans expect their blood pressure medication to treat their conditions, not cause cancer. The FDA needs to finish its investigation and develop a plan to prevent further contamination.”
