(HealthDay)—Some bottles of montelukast (Singulair) tablets for asthma have been recalled by Camber Pharmaceuticals because they contain the wrong medication, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.
Bottles labeled as containing 30 tablets of 10-milligram montelukast sodium tablets instead contain 90 tablets of losartan potassium tablets.
