Aurobindo Pharma USA Inc. is recalling 2,352/1,000 count bottles of Simvastatin tablets USP 40 mg manufactured by Aurolife Pharma LLC, the United States Food and Drug Administration said its Enforcement Report.

The voluntary ongoing nationwide recall is a class III recall, it added.

The product was distributed nationwide by three major distributors who may have further distributed the product, the report said.

As per the U.S. FDA, a class III recall is initiated in a situation "in which use of or exposure to a violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences".
