Blood Pressure Medication Recalls & Ohio Valsartan Cancer Lawsuits

Product Liability Attorney investigating Ohio cancer cases related to Valsartan contamination and blood pressure medication recalls


In an ongoing investigation of Valsartan contamination and blood pressure medication recalls, Valisure has has alerted the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of dimethylformamide (DMF) in valsartan products they are distributing, produced by various pharmaceutical companies. DMF is classified as a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Cancer Society.

Patients who have taken valsartan, Losartan and other common blood pressure drugs have reportedly been diagnosed with various conditions such as the following:

  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Kidney cancer

Valsartan contamination lawsuits and injured plaintiffs claim numerous batches of Valsartan have been found with the cancer-causing toxins N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), and/or N-Methylnitrosobutyric acid (NMBA). As a result, several drug makers have issued blood pressure medication recalls of any drug containing valsartan.
