Certain lots of irbesartan are being recalled by SciGen because they contain an industrial chemical that’s a suspected carcinogen, CNN reported.
The recalled drugs have "Westminster Pharmaceuticals" and "GSMS Inc." on the label.

Not all medicines that contain valsartan or irbesartan are being recalled. The new recall covers only about 1 percent of irbesartan drug products available in the United States, according to the FDA.
