Another blood pressure medication recall has hit the market, this time from Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging, LLC. The company has recalled 43 lots of repackaged Losartan tablets USP 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg for a possible cancer-causing impurity.

Losartan Potassium USP tablets are used to treat high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. The recalled medication was packaged in 30 count bottles. NDC numbers include NDC 68645-577-54, NDC 68645-578-54, and NDC 68645-579-54, as well as NDC 68645-494-54.
