What’s the Problem?

This recall affects Lupin Metformin Hydrochloride Extended-Release Tablets USP (generic equivalent of Fortamet), 500mg, lot G901203, according to a Recall Notice by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Lupin Pharmaceuticals issued the recall after FDA testing detected NDMA levels that exceeded the Acceptable Daily Intake Limit (ADI) of 96ng/day.

If you were prescribed any metformin that is included in this recall, you should contact Lupin Pharmaceuticals for information about a return/replacement. Anyone concerned about a potential adverse reaction to NDMA in metformin should consult their physician.
