Zantac Recall

Sanofi has announced that it is recalling the popular heartburn drug Zantac OTC.

In October 2019, the FDA announced that it had found “unacceptable” levels of NDMA in Zantac and its generic equivalent, ranitidine, putting patients who used these drugs at an increased risk of developing cancer.

Sanofi Issues Zantac
Recall Over Cancer Concerns

Sanofi stated that it was recalling Zantac OTC following test results that showed evidence of potential contamination. The drugmaker stated that it would perform additional tests on Zantac and share the results with the FDA and other health regulators.

Several drugmakers recalled Zantac and ranitidine over concerns about the safety of these medications following the FDA’s warning. Novartis AG’s Sandoz division announced that it was recalling generic ranitidine in September 2019, and GlaxoSmithKline followed suit with prescription formulations of Zantac in October.

Several pharmacy chains have also recalled Zantac and ranitidine. In September 2019, CVS announced that it would stop selling Zantac and its own generic version of ranitidine. Walmart, Walgreens, and Rite Aid have also stopped selling Zantac and ranitidine in response to concerns about the cancer risk associated with these drugs.

WHAT IS ZANTAC?

GENERIC NAME(S): Ranitidine Hcl

Ranitidine is used to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines and prevent them from coming back after they have healed. This medication is also used to treat certain stomach and throat (esophagus) problems (such as erosive esophagitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease-GERD, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as a cough that doesn’t go away, stomach pain, heartburn, and difficulty swallowing. Ranitidine belongs to a class of drugs known as H2 blockers.

This medication is also available without a prescription. It is used to prevent and treat heartburn and other symptoms caused by too much acid in the stomach (acid indigestion). If you are taking this medication for self-treatment, it is important to read the manufacturer’s package instructions carefully so you know when to consult your doctor or pharmacist.
