The Mohap explained that other medicines containing Valsartan manufactured using the same active ingredient from other sources are safe to use.
Valsartan is a drug used for high blood pressure and heart conditions.
Health Canada indicated it is monitoring the companies' recalls and suggests people taking medicine with valsartan should keep doing so unless their doctor or pharmacist tells them to stop. The offending impurity is N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which has been listed as a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
Drugs containing valsartan are used to treat high blood pressure and help prevent heart attacks and stroke.
The valsartan active ingredient from the facility in China has been used by various pharmaceutical manufacturers to produce valsartan-containing medications in Europe, some of which are available on-island.
Health Canada also advises anyone taking any medication containing valsartan to speak to their pharmacist to find out if their medicine is being recalled.
The Ministry of Health and Prevention said the recall is a precautionary measure following a report issued by the European Medicines Agency.
