What Happened With the Irbesartan Recall?

Lupin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is voluntarily recalling their blood pressure medication, Irbesartan because they found a recent batch to have unacceptable levels of the impurity N-nitrosoirbesartan. This is a carcinogen that can be linked to cancer if taken over a long period of time.

Four people have reported sickness after taking Irbesartan, so the company is recalling it out of an abundance of caution. Anyone who received Irbesartan from Lupin between October 8, 2018, and September 30, 2021, is a part of the recall.
