Zantac Pulled From Several Stores Over Cancer Concerns
If you use the popular heartburn medicine Zantac or its generic versions, you may want to be aware of the Alert Statement from the FDA that has prompted Rite Aid, CVS, and Walgreens to pull the products from their store shelves over the possible concern of a cancer risk.
The report released by the Food and Drug Administration warned that it had detected low levels of a cancer-causing chemical in samples of the drug.
Customers who have bought the products at Rite Aid, CVS, and Walgreens can return them to the store for a refund.
The FDA is continuing to investigate the precise source of the contamination and what risks are associated with the product.
