Scrips likely to see action: Sun Pharma, Canara Bank, Gayatri Projects, RITES

Drug recall in US may inflict pain on Sun Pharma

Reports that the US arm of Sun Pharmaceuticals has voluntarily recalled one lot of Riomet ER oral suspension in the US market, may keep the stock under pressure.

According to the reports, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sun Pharma, is voluntarily recalling the drug presence of a probable human carcinogen above the acceptable daily intake limit.

“The reason for the recall is due to the level of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which has been found to be above the acceptable daily intake (ADI) limit established by the USFDA,” it added.

The board of directors of Canara Bank will meet on Friday to consider raising capital through a Qualified Institutional Placement.
