WASHINGTON, D.C. -- For the second time in two years, a generic form of Lipitor has been recalled in the U.S.

The recall comes from India-based Ranbaxy Laboratories.

The company is withdrawing more than 64,000 bottles of 10 milligram tablets of Atorvastatin Calcium, which is a generic form of the cholesterol loweing drug.

The concern is some of these bottles may contain 20 milligram tablets.

The recall was announced on the FDA website last week.
