The recalled losartan and potassium / hydrochlorothiazide combination tablets contained low levels of N-nitrosodiethylamine or NDEA, according to a company announcement published Wednesday, by the Food and Drug Administration website.

"The active ingredient was manufactured by Hetero Labs Limited of India, one of the overseas drug factories," the recall notice has iterating repeated blood drug recalls since last July.
