Case of 10-milligram Lipitor.

(NBC) - For the second time in two years, a generic form of Lipitor has been recalled in the U.S.

The recall comes from India-based Ran-Baxy Laboratories and was announced on the F.D.A. website last week.

The company is withdrawing more than 64,000 bottles of 10-milligram tablets of atorvastatin calcium, which is a generic form of the cholesterol lowering drug. There is concern some of these bottles may contain 20-milligram tablets.
