We have been informed by HSA that 8 different brands of ranitidine has been recalled. This includes the Zantac syrup and tablets by GlaxoSmithKline that we normally dispense.
The reason for the recall is that there have been reports in the USA that there are nitrosamine impurities which could increase risk of cancer when used for long periods of time.
If you currently have zantac, please stop using the product and keep it aside in a secure place first. Once we get further notice from HSA, we will post another notice as to whether the product can be discarded by normal garbage disposal or does it need to be discarded by special means.
We are also doing our best to contact each client that we have dispensed the medication to since June 2019. We appreciate your kind understanding and patience.
