The companies can manufacture and sale valsartan medicine made from valsartan raw material imported from other qualified sources, the statement said.
The FDA advises that patients contact pharmacists or physicians for advice on alternate therapy in lieu of the recalled treatment.
Companies which are recognized pharmaceuticals are Major Pharmaceuticals, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Solco Healthcare.
