The US arm of the domestic drug major Sun Pharmaceutical Industries is recalling over 5.2 thousand units of testosterone cypionate injections from the American market, the latest enforcement report of the US health regulator said as per the PTI.

Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Inc is recalling 5,215 units of 10 mL vials testosterone cypionate injections in the strength of 200 mg/mL, on account of "presence of particulate matter: organic and inorganic compounds detected in vials of product," the report said.
