Losartan Recall Lawsuit
In November 2018, the FDA issued a recall of Losartan after detecting trace amounts of the probable human carcinogen N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA). This is the third blood pressure drug to have been recalled due to possible cancer risk.
Many patients that were on Valsartan were switched over to Losartan after Valsartan was recalled in July 2018. However, these Losartan users are still at risk for contamination.

Losartan Recall Lawsuit: Case Quick Facts
Losartan is indicated for the treatment of hypertension. The brand name, Cozaar, was approved by the FDA in 1995 and the generic, Losartan, was approved in April 2010. The recall involves one lot of Losartan Potassium Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets, USP 100mg/25mg to the consumer level. It was recalled due to the trace amount of N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), an impurity that has been classified as a probable human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
