Pfizer on Monday issued a voluntary recall of medication that treats high blood pressure. Some lots of Accuretic and two lots of generic drugs distributed by Greenstone are included in the recall.
The batches are being recalled because they contain unacceptable amounts of nitrosamines, impurities that are also found in food such as meats, cheeses and more. They can even form as food and products are processed in the body, according to the US Food and Drug Administration. But if nitrosamines are consumed over the long term or in large amounts, they can increase the risk for cancer.
Specific lot numbers and photos of the drug bottles can be found in the recall announcement. Accuretic and its generic versions contain either quinapril HCl/hydrochlorothiazide or quinapril and hydrochlorothiazide.
