Digitek recalled

Actavis Totowa LLC is recalling all lots of the prescription drug Digitek, used to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms, because some of the drug’s tablets might contain twice the approved level of the active ingredient.

Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kiran Kumar is advising all patients using this medication to stop immediately and contact their physicians.

The products are distributed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. under a “Bertek” label and by UDL Laboratories, Inc. under a “UDL” label.
