Blood Pressure Medicine Recall Lawsuit

Valsartan, Irbesartan, and Losartan Recalled

In July 2018, the FDA recalled Valsartan after finding the probable human carcinogen N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) had contaminated the drug. A few months later in October 2018, Irbesartan was recalled for NDEA contamination.  And finally, in December 2018, Losartan was recalled for NDEA contamination. Since the initial recalls, NDMA, NDEA, and N-Nitroso-N-Methyl 4-aminobutyric acid (NMBA) have been found in several lots of the medications. NDMA, NDEA, and NMBA may cause the following cancers:

  • Liver Cancer
  • Colon Cancer
  • Intestinal Cancer
  • Stomach Cancer
  • Lower Esophageal Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Leukemia
  • Multiple Myeloma

Blood Pressure Medication Recall: Case Quick Facts

The Problem

NDMA, NDEA, and NMBA are nitrosamines. They were found to have contaminated the drugs in suppliers’ facilities. These substances can also be found in air pollution and certain industrial processes, and if ingested they have the potential to cause cancer. In animal studies, tumors were found in the liver, respiratory tract, and blood vessels of test subjects after exposure to these nitrosamines. The “sartan” drugs GoldenbergLaw is investigating include:

In all of the above-named drugs, the recalled lots were contaminated with NDMA, NDEA, and NMBA, leaving patients at risk of developing liver cancer, stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, intestinal cancer, esophageal cancer, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, and multiple myeloma.

The Injuries

Exposure to NDMA, NDEA, and NMBA can cause:

  • Liver Cancer
