Foster’s Supermarket would like to announce that Pfizer recalls Inderal-LA (propranolol hydrochloride) capsules due to a nitrosamine impurity
Product: Inderal-LA (propranolol hydrochloride) extended release capsules, in 60 mg, 80 mg, 120 mg and 160 mg strengths
Issue: Health products – Contamination
What to do: Contact your health care provider to discuss other treatment options.

Long-term exposure to N-nitroso-propranolol at a level above what is considered safe may increase the risk of cancer. We are all exposed to low levels of nitrosamines through a variety of foods (such as smoked and cured meats, dairy products, and vegetables), drinking water, and air pollution. This impurity is not expected to cause harm when ingested at or below the acceptable level. A person taking a drug that contains this impurity at or below the acceptable level every day for 70 years is not expected to have an increased risk of cancer.
Foster’s Pharmacy does carry Pfizer products and has been affected by this recall. All affected products have been removed from our shelves.
