Shares of the company, which on Tuesday also disclosed a warning letter it received from the FDA earlier this month, fell nearly 2 percent to $33.91 after the bell.
The news comes a day after the European Union authorities stepped in to effectively ban sales of valsartan made by an India-based Mylan unit after some batches were found to contain the same impurity, N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA).
Mylan said on Tuesday it would recall at least 15 lots of medicines containing valsartan distributed in the United States between March 2017 and November 2018 and manufactured by units Mylan Pharmaceuticals and Mylan Laboratories.
