The FDA said the US-based arm of Sun Pharma is recalling 59,232 bottles of Chlorthalidone tablets, used for reducing excess fluid levels in the body.

As per the US health regulator, the New Jersey-based Sun Pharma Inc is recalling the affected lot due to “foreign matter identified as stainless steel microscopic wear particles mixed with punch lubricant oil and silicone particles from the dust cup.”
