In response, the FDA ordered; "all ranitidine medications, sold under the brand name Zantac, taken off store shelves immediately. The order is tied to concerns that the medication may contain a cancer-causing chemical that's also been detected in certain blood pressure medications," according to Health In addition to heartburn, acid reflux, and blood pressure medications, the FDA just announced that dangerously elevated levels of NDMA in metaform, a best-selling diabetic drug, were reported to the government health watchdog agency. Metaform is used to treat the initial stages of Type 2 diabetes. The Decan Herald cited Bloomberg as anticipating a metiform recall as early as next week. The reports to the FDA were made by online drug testing pharmacy Valisure, the same company responsible for the Zantac NDMA cancer discoveries. Valisure found elevated levels of NDMA in samples of metaform manufactured by eleven different companies.
