Other Ranitidine Product Recalls
A drug recall is an action brought on by a pharmaceutical company to remove its defective product from the market. Recall on medications may be carried out by request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or on a company’s own accord. Recalls are the most effective way to protect everyone from potentially harmful or defective drugs. The FDA has advised pharmaceutical companies to recall their ranitidine products if levels of NDMA of more than 96 nanograms are found in samples. Any medication containing over 96 nanograms, or .32 parts per million, is above the acceptable daily ranitidine intake level. While the FDA posted laboratory results from its analysis of ranitidine samples, the agency made clear that the testing procedure, which revealed high levels of NDMA, utilized higher heat than normal body temperatures. As a result, the testing failed to replicate the typical conditions under which the drug would be taken or maintained.

The FDA has requested all companies that manufacture ranitidine, as well as other related medicines (H2 blockers and proton-pump inhibitors), to perform their own laboratory tests that apply heat levels closer to normal body temperatures. As of January, there have been a wave of voluntary recalls of drugs containing ranitidine. The following pharmaceutical companies have all recalled their versions of Zantac:
- Lannett Company;
- Novitium Pharma;
- Northwind Pharmaceuticals (a.k.a. Denton Pharma);
- Appco Pharma;
- Sandoz (pharma division of Novartis);
- Golden State Medical Supply;
- Apotex; and
Chemists at Valisure believe that NDMA forms as a result of the ranitidine molecule reacting with something either throughout the course of manufacturing, while being stored, in finished dosage form or while the body is breaking it down. The above medicines have been recalled because they may contain unacceptable amounts of the potential carcinogen NDMA. Additionally, CVS, Target, Rite-Aid and Walgreens have all voluntarily taken Zantac and its generic equivalents off their shelves. If you recently purchased Zantac or another over-the-counter (OTC) medication containing ranitidine, CVS is currently offering patrons a full refund, and will continue to sell other OTC heartburn medications that do not contain ranitidine.
Austria, France, Canada and many other countries around the world have begun recalling all different forms of ranitidine products. It is important to note that thus far not every ranitidine medication currently marketed in the United States has been recalled. Some ranitidine products are still being sold. Further information regarding ranitidine recalls is readily accessible on the FDA’s NDMA in Zantac (ranitidine) webpage.
