Ranbaxy’s Atorvastatin Calcium Tablets Recalled

Filed November 29th, 2012 admin

Ranbaxy Inc. has initiated a recall of 41 affected lots of Atorvastatin Calcium Tablets (10 mg, 20 mg and 40 mg), which is sold to the retail level in a solid oral dosage form.

Ranbaxy is taking action as a precautionary measure because it cannot exclude the possibility that the affected lots may contain very small glass particles resembling a fine grain of sand, less than 1 mm in size, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a recall notice. Since the particles, which may be present in the affected lots, are so small it is unknown if they pose a significant safety concern. However, the possibility of adverse experiences arising primarily due to physical irritation cannot be ruled out, the FDA said.

The product is used to lower blood cholesterol and is packaged in plastic bottles, as 90 and 500 tablets per bottle. The affected lots of Atorvastatin Calcium Tablets and their respective NDC code and expiration date information can be found on Ranbaxy’s website. The recall does not affect the 80 mg dosage strength of Atorvastatin Calcium Tablets, the FDA said.

Consumers are advised to immediately contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking Atorvastatin Calcium Tablets.
