CVS Stops Selling Zantac Until Further Notice
CVS Stores has announced that they will not be selling the popular heartburn treatmen Zantac (and items like it) until further notice.
The reason that they are pulling these products from their shelves, according to a press release is:
This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution due to a recent Product Alert from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that ranitidine products may contain a low level of nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which is a probable human carcinogen.
Are you someone that takes this over the counter medication on a regular basis? CVS wants you to know that while they have stopped selling the products, this is not a recall. However, if you would like to return your unopened product to a CVS store for a refund you can do that.
What product will you use instead of the Zantac like item? Let us know.
