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. Eleven people have reported getting sick after taking the drug. The Morristown, New Jersey, company says it’s not aware of any deaths. The drug was distributed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. under a “Bertek” label and by UDL Laboratories Inc. under a “UDL” label. For more information, consumers can call 888-276-6166 or visit http://www.actavis.us. Any reactions should be reported to the Food and Drug Administration’s MedWatch adverse event reporting program at http://www.fda.gov/medwatch/report.htm.
