The drugs being recalled (see list below) are in the 10 mg, 20 mg and 40 mg dosage strengths, packaged in 90 and 500 count bottles. The company stressed, too, that it is only “with respect to certain select lot numbers.” The announcement added, “The recall does not affect or related to the 80 mg strength.”

“The recall is being conducted at the retail level for such select batches that may contain a foreign substance (small glass particles approximately less than 1mm in size),:” the company said.

Ranbaxy said it is “proactively recalling the drug product lots out of an abundance of caution, and in keeping the safety of our customers in mind. This recall is being conducted with the full knowledge of the U.S. FDA.”
