Indian Drug Maker Recalling Antibacterial Drug

The U.S. unit of Lupin Ltd., an Indian drug maker, is recalling thousands of bottles of antibacterial drugs, due to a failure to meet the FDA standards for impurities. The recall, reported by the Wall Street Journal, was initiated on Jan. 27, but the FDA did not notify the public until the week of April 14.
