By Erin Smith

A recall for a popular blood pressure and heart failure medication has been expanded to include more medication that contain Losartan as an ingredient.  The medications are being  recalled due to impurities found in the Losartan that are a potential carcinogen.

The US Food and Drug Administration said the impurity is N-Nitroso-N-methyl-4-aminobutyric acid or NMBA. The company, Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited, has voluntarily issued a recall of 87 lots of Losartan tablets made by the Hetero Labs Limited in Indiana.

According to a release regarding the recall, Losaratan is used to treat a variety of medical conditions including hypertension (high blood pressure), certain types of heart disease, and nephropathy is Type 2 diabetic patients.
