The recall has expanded for the fourth time to include 36 additional lots of Losartan Potassium Tablets USP and 68 lots of Losartan Potassium/Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets, USP, according to the FDA. They believe that the meds contain traces of the impurity N-Methylnitrosobutyric acid (NMBA), a potential cancer-causing carcinogen.

The FDA advises you to contact your physician, who will be able to advise you about alternative treatment plans before you stop taking the medication altogether.
