    Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited expanded its recall of losartan and losartan/hydrochlorothiazide over another nitrosamine impurity, N-Nitroso-N-methyl-4-aminobutyric acid (NMBA), which is considered possibly carcinogenic.

    The affected lots are listed in the manufacturers' recall notices, linked below.
