"Product was shipped to five wholesalers and one supermarket chain who may have further distributed the product throughout the US," it added.
Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA Inc, a subsidiary of Zydus Cadila, is also recalling 7,668 bottles of Carvedilol Tablets, used to treat high blood pressure, in the American market.
The drug firm is recalling the drug due to the "presence of foreign tablets/capsules", the USFDA said.
"Customer complaint for a small, solid, light yellow substance, identified as a fragmented tablet of another drug product, found mixed with tablets in a bottle of Carvedilol tablets 3.125mg," it added.
The USFDA classified both the recalls as Class III.
