A generic form of Lipitor is being recalled for the second time in two years.

The recall comes from an India-based company that is withdrawing more than 64,000 bottles of 10 mg tablets of Atorvastatin Calcium, a generic form of the cholesterol lowering drug.

Officials said the concern is some of the bottles may contain 20 mg tablets although there have been no product complaints related to the recalled batches.

The company had to recall the same drug in 2012 for fears some bottles contained small particles of glass.
