Tiny pieces of glass in generic Lipitor promoted the manufacturer of the potentially defective drug to issue a recall of certain lots of the product, the said.
According to safety advocates, Ranbaxy Laboratories have endured multiple problems in the past few years, gaining negative attention from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about the quality of the products they produce. The recall of generic Lipitor for glass particles is just the latest of many problems the drug manufacturer has experienced recently.
In addition to being at the center of a recent recall for glass particles in generic Lipitor, Ranbaxy is also under fire for allegedly lying to the Food and Drug Administration about results for testing performed on their products and drugs.
The generic version of Lipitor, also known as atorvastatin calcium, is one of the highest selling drugs in the world, making the recall for drug defects even more troubling.
