The 37.5 mg tablets in 30-count bottles and 90-count bottles, were manufactured by Sun Pharmaceutical Industries at Halol for Sun Pharma Global, Dubai.

The withdrawal was classified as a Class-II recall, which the FDA defines as a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.
