Mylan to recall all batches of valsartan in the US



Mylan said on Tuesday that there is a nationwide voluntary recall of all the blood pressure medication Valsartan, which is expanding a recall of selected batches initiated two weeks ago.

The drug maker said 104 additional lots were "recalled over-caution" after it was found that the valsartan-containing products contained traces of a likely carcinogenic contaminant.

The finished products, manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and Mylan Laboratories, were distributed between March 2017 and March in the US November 2018, the company said in a statement.

The company's shares fell 2 percent to $ 33.40 after the announcement.
