Over the past several months, dozens of blood pressure medications used to treat high blood pressue have been recalled. Federal investigators have discovered potentially cancer-causing impurities in them. The Public Interest Research Group just reported the 75th recall of blood pressure medications since the problem first appeared (That’s right, 75 blood pressure medications)!

These common prescription drugs include valsartan, losartan, and irbesartan in different combinations and from different manufacturers.

For the fourth time in the past year, a widely used blood pressure medication is under review amid concerns it could contain chemicals that could potentially cause cancer.
