Contamination Concerns Forces Another Zantac Recall

johnson & johnson

Makers of Zantac are being told to pull their products off the shelf again. This move applies to all prescription and over-the-counter versions of ranitidine (brand name, Zantac.) A drug commonly used to treat stomach ulcers and acid. Anyone who has Zantac should stop taking it immediately and throw it away. This comes after the FDA’s decision last year, which concluded that levels of the carcinogen NDMA, were low, and did not pose any health risks.

Officials have now reversed that decision and have now concluded that the levels of NDMA increase over time. The levels of this cancer-causing compound increase even more if stored in higher temperatures. The FDA states that the risk Zantac poses unacceptable. If you take Zantac regularly, please consult your doctor for alternatives.
