Losartan Potassium Tablets Voluntary Recall Expanded

December 20, 2018

On December 20, 2018, Torrent issued a voluntary recall of losartan potassium 100 mg tablets. On January 3, 2019, Torrent expanded the recall by adding additional lots of losartan potassium 100 mg tablets and additional strengths to include losartan potassium 25 mg tablets and losartan potassium 50 mg tablets.

This recall was issued because an unexpected impurity was found in these products that may cause health risks. This may represent a potential health hazard or safety risk to plan members who may be using product affected by this recall.

Please note: The FDA recommends that members who are on losartan should continue taking their medicine until they receive replacement product or a different medicine to treat their condition, as the risk of harm to the patient’s health may be higher if the treatment is stopped immediately without any alternative treatment. Please call your doctor right away for advice if you may be using affected product. Your doctor is familiar with your medical history and can suggest the best treatment option for you. If you need a prescription for a different medicine, please contact your doctor.
