NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Two popular medicines used to treat blood pressure have been recalled due to concerns over a possible cancer risk.

Teva Pharmaceuticals announced that they’ve launched a voluntary recall of amlodipine/valsartan and amlodipine/valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide combination blood pressure tablets.

According to the FDA, the drugs could contain an impurity called N-nitroso-diethylamine, which has been classified as a possible carcinogen in humans.

People taking either drug should contact their doctor or pharmacist for advice or alternative treatments. Stopping the drugs immediately with no comparable alternative could pose a greater risk to patients’ health, according to a statement on the FDA website.

The drugs were manufactured for Teva by Mylan India.
