A recent USA Today article discussed the latest blood pressure medicine recall announced by the FDA. Aurobindo Pharma USA has issued a voluntary recall for two lots of quinapril and hydrochlorothiazide for potential cancer risk. The pink round tablets are typically prescribed to patients with hypertension to lower blood pressure. The recall is due to the presence of nitrosamine, also known as N-nitroso-quinapril.
