More Blood Pressure Meds Recalled For Cancer Risk

There’s an important new heart-medicine recall to know about.

Camber Pharmaceuticals is pulling about 56,000 bottles of Losartan used to treat high-blood pressure and congestive heart failure.








That’s after trace amounts of a potential carcinogen were found to be in the medicine.

The Food and Drug Administration said no one has reported any adverse affects from the drug.









Patients should speak with their doctor to discuss the recall before they stop taking the drug.
