Are You A Valsartan User Who Has Developed Cancer?

Valsartan is the active ingredient used in a wide range of pharmaceutical products intended to treat high blood pressure and other heart conditions. 

Valsartan has been widely recalled since the FDA stated it may contain a cancer-causing impurity, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which was found in some of the recalled products.

Not all products containing Valsartan are being recalled, so if you’ve developed a certain type of cancer as a user of products containing Valsartan, our Lawyers can help to quickly establish if the product you took may have contained harmful carcinogens.

People who took contaminated Valsartan for at least one year between 2014 and present, and have developed certain types of cancer, may be eligible to join a Valsartan lawsuit.

Please read the important information below and if you meet the required criteria, our Valsartan Injury Attorneys can provide you with a free legal consultation to establish your eligibility to join this Class Action Lawsuit.

Facts About The Valsartan Lawsuit

Kellum Law Firm May Be Able To Represent You In The Fight For Damages Against The Manufacturers Of Valsartan.

Valsartan And The Carcinogen NDMA

The FDA has found a “low level” of the potential carcinogen nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in Valsartan.

Valsartan And Wide Ranging Recalls

The Valsartan recall was wide-ranging and affected products manufactured by numerous companies – some of which outsourced manufacturing to India and China.

If You've Used Valsartan Or A Product Containing Valsartan

and have been diagnosed with certain types of cancer, you may be eligible to join a lawsuit against the manufacturers.

Important Details of The Valsartan Class Action Lawsuits – Please Read.

 

Valsartan is one of the active ingredients used in a wide range of prescription heart medications and high blood pressure medications.

Though the focus of the recall has been the unwanted inclusion of the carcinogen N-nitrosodimethylamine, N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) has also been found in Valsartan.

It is common practice for US based pharmaceutical companies to outsource manufacturing of the medications in use by the US public, and such was the case with Valsartan. Outsourcing to manufacturers in China and India is a way to increase the already exorbitant profits these pharmaceutical companies are renowned for, with the American public being largely oblivious to the source of their medications. Without the same levels of oversight as US based pharmaceutical manufacturers, companies in China and India, to name two examples, often bypass certain quality procedures and laboratory testing, which can result in medications with known carcinogens hitting the US marketplace.

The list of manufacturers affected by the Valsartan recall is expected to grow as the full extent of this situation develops. At the time of writing the list includes:

  • A-S Medication Solutions LLCValsartan product recall and lawsuit attorneys
  • Aurobindo Pharma USA, Inc.
  • Bryant Ranch Prepack Inc.
  • H J Harkins Company Inc. dba Pharma Pac
  • Hetero Labs, Inc. labeled as Camber Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
  • Mylan Pharmaceuticals
  • Northwind Pharmaceuticals
  • NuCare Pharmaceuticals Inc.
  • Preferred Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
  • Prinston Pharmaceutical Inc.
  • RemedyRepack Inc.
  • Teva Pharmaceuticals / Actavis
  • Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited
