Ministry of Health also has directed all to to stop using anything that contains the concerned chemical from the mentioned company. They are also used by patients who have had heart failure or a recent heart attack.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA), which first raised the alarm over the Chinese supplied valsartan on July 5, said it was now working to establish how long and at what levels patients might have been exposed to the impurity known as NDMA.

Valsartan was recalled by the FDA on Friday (July 13), a move 22 other countries have made in the last few weeks. The FDA believes the sudden presence of NDMA is due to how the substance was manufactured.

Scott Gottlieb said "The FDA is committed to maintaining our gold standard for safety and efficacy".
