One lot of Actavis' Nifedipine 10mg capsules is being recalled after a pharmacist reported finding a Procardia capsule in the bottle.

Procardia is the brand version of nifedipine, a calcium channel blocker, and both drugs are indicated for the management of vasospastic and chronic stable angina. The Procardia pill found in the Nifedipine bottle was of the same strength so the likelihood of a serious adverse event is small. However, given that Actavis does not manufacture Procardia (a Pfizer product), it is considered a foreign capsule and therefore a recall on this particular lot is being called for.
