Judy Maggio:

Why are certain medications being recalled for containing carcinogens and what are some recent examples? we ask Tennessee lawyer Chris Gilreath in this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Chris Gilreath:

There are a lot of manufacturers out there making the same types of drugs, and they're using assorted facilities all over the world, most of them outside the US, and not all those facilities stay up to FDA standards of cleanliness, sterility and operative quality. So what's happening is as these manufacturers are sub-contracting with other facilities, a variety of products are being made on the same platforms, and the platforms are not being sterilized between lots. A couple of examples of the types of medications that are being recalled or being subjected to these carcinogens is Valsartan, Losartan, Irbesartan, and over-the-counter Zantac.
