Indian generic-drug firms involved in recalls

Indian generic-drug makers Sun Pharmaceutical Industries and Ranbaxy Laboratories have recalled batches of treatments in the U.S. following complaints of bottling mix-ups.

Sun Pharma diabetes tablets were found with an epilepsy medication, while Ranbaxy pulled two batches of its version of Pfizer's Lipitor cholesterol drug.

The recalls come amid increasing scrutiny of generic drugs manufactured in India and of Ranbaxy (RBXLY) in particular - four of its plants are banned from exporting to the U.S. after failing to meet FDA strictures.

Ranbaxy is owned by Japan's Daiichi Sankyo (DSKYF).
