Some metformin being recalled

The FDA is telling five drugmakers to recall versions of metformin after laboratory tests found elevated levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine, the chemical that was found in dozens of shipments of blood pressure and heartburn drugs last year, triggering recalls of those medications.

Of course, keep taking these versions of metformin if you have them; going without it is a much higher health risk than the presence of the contaminant. But it might be good to know that some supplies may be recalled. The linked article has more details.

Looks like Viona Pharmaceuticals second recall in the last 8 months. 2 lots last time 23 lots this time. Seems like someone should be looking at the suppliers of the ER constituents. Would they, whomever they are, happen to be the suppliers to all who've had NMDA recalls?
