FDA posted: Updates on angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) recalls
FDA alerts patients and healthcare professionals to ScieGen’s irbesatran recall due to NDEA
Certain irbesartan products labeled as Westminster Pharmaceuticals Inc. and GSMS Inc. recalled
Update [10/30/2018] FDA is alerting patients and health care professionals to ScieGen’s voluntary recall of certain lots of irbesartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), because they contain N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), a known animal and suspected human carcinogen (causes cancer). FDA laboratory testing confirmed NDEA in some lots of ScieGen’s irbesartan. ScieGen’s irbesartan products are labeled as Westminster Pharmaceuticals and Golden State Medical Supply, Inc. (GSMS). See the list of irbesartan products under recall. This is the first non-valsartan drug product the agency has found to contain the NDEA impurity.
ScieGen’s recall affects about 1 percent of the irbesartan drug products in the U.S. market.

FDA Press Announcement: FDA takes action to stop use of lead acetate in hair dyes
For Immediate Release
October 30, 2018
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today took action to remove lead acetate in hair coloring products given potential safety concerns about lead exposure from these products.
“Today’s action is part of our commitment to protect Americans by reducing exposure to toxic elements and builds upon federal efforts to reduce exposure to lead,” said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D.
Lead exposure can have serious adverse effects on human health, including for children who may be particularly vulnerable.
This action is based on new scientific data that show there is no longer a reasonable certainty that there is no harm from the use of lead acetate as a color additive.
Highlights from last week’s vision:Toledo Arts, Rec & Events meeting:
Thanks to winning a Beautification Grant, Joh Jones reported new city approach entry signs are in the works, a new sign park fence has been installed behind the Oregon Trail Marker, bearing the "Vote for School Bond" banner. See City Hall for posting your event there.
Steamboat Alley front entry gate is under construction, two benches are completed, and gutters installed on neighboring buildings to thwart erosion of pavers.
Common Ground Toledo shared: Mayor Dobosh was recognised for his help in watering the downtown planters this summer.
