Dr. Reddy Cholesterol Drug Recall

Dr. Reddy will recall a single lot of its cholesterol lowering drug simvastatin (80 mg) from the US market. It is a labeling screw-up, apparently. Dr. Reddy has recalled more lots of the same drug of different strengths.

Over 60,000 bottles of 10 mg and 40 mg simvastatin will be recalled from the market, the company informed the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA).

Clearly, every recall is important and, over the long haul, you want to be taking the appropriate amount of simvastatin. But is anyone going to get harmed by this? I doubt it.
