Generic Lipitor recalled

TRENTON, N.J.

Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals Inc. has recalled dozens of lots of its generic version of cholesterol drug Lipitor because some may contain tiny glass particles, the latest in a string of manufacturing deficiencies that once led U.S. regulators to bar imports of the Indian company’s medicines.

Friday, Ranbaxy, a subsidiary of Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd., India’s biggest drugmaker, posted a notice on its U.S. website, saying it’s recalling 10-, 20- and 40-milligram doses of atorvastatin calcium, which is generic Lipitor.
