Diovan (generic: valsartan) might have become contaminated with NDMA if produced by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals (China) or Hetero Labs Limited (India), according to the FDA. Potential injuries include liver damage, tumors, cancer, and more.
What is NDMA?
N-nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, can occur in drinking water through the degradation of dimethylhydrazine (a component of rocket fuel), as well as from several other industrial processes, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). NDMA is also a contaminant of certain pesticides, and has recently been identified as a disinfection by-product of chloramination.
