The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a recall for all Zantac (ranitidine) drugs including over the counter and prescription formulas on April 1, 2020. The administration stated the presence of an impurity N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which is a known cancer-causing agent, has been found in multiple independent laboratory tests. Over-the-counter Zantac and ranitidine-containing drugs had previously been recalled due to these same concerns.
