The pharmaceutical company Pure Pharma BmbH & Co. KG has launched several products in the blood pressure and heart drug Candesartan. Reason for this is a labelling error in the thickness of the tablets.
The manufacturer of Pure returns to the heart medication Candesartan-comp Pure 32 mg/25 mg tablets Candesartan-comp Pure 32 mg/12.5 mg. Only last week there was a recall of individual batches, after an attentive Patient had reported incorrect information about the ingredients on the packaging.
The group is calling back now all medications

Reason for the recall is a faulty indication of hydrochlorothiazide on individual packages. Accordingly, the indication of the strength of the blisters is correct. The error relates to the indication of the strength on the carton: 32 mg/12.5 mg instead of 32 mg/25 mg.
