What’s the Problem?
This recall affects 100-count bottles of 500 mg Metformin Hydrochloride Extended-Release Tablets, USP, NDC Number 60505-0260-1, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
The recalled metformin contains N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a known environmental contaminant that has been linked to increased rates of gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, and severe liver damage.
Apotex Corp. discontinued the sale of metformin in the U.S. in Feb. 2019, and there remains only a limited quantity in circulation, according to the FDA.
If you purchased any metformin that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it and contact Apotex to arrange for a return. Anyone concerned about a potential adverse reaction to metformin should contact their physician immediately.
This recall began on May 27, 2020.
