Case Information

A class action lawsuit called In re: Valsartan, Losartan, and Irbesartan Products Liability Litigation, Case No. 1:19-md-02875-RBK-SAK (the “Lawsuit”) is currently pending in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (“the Court”). The lawsuit alleges that Defendants (a complete list of these Defendants is available at here) violated state laws by manufacturing, distributing, selling and/or dispensing Valsartan or VCDs that contained impurities in the form of nitrosamines, N-nitrosodimethylamine (“NDMA”) and N-nitrosodiethylamine (“NDEA”). The Defendants have denied any wrongdoing and asserted various legal and factual defenses to the claims asserted on behalf of the Classes.

No money or benefits are available now because the Court has not yet decided whether Defendants did anything wrong, and the two sides have not settled the case.
