US finds contaminant in popular heartburn drug

September 13, 2019

U.S. health officials are investigating low levels of a potentially dangerous contaminant in the popular heartburn medication Zantac and related drugs. FDA officials said the amount of the contaminant barely exceeds levels found in common foods. But the same chemical has been linked to dozens of recalls of blood pressure drugs in the past year. The FDA is still investigating that issue and last month sanctioned a manufacturing plant in India that makes some of the medications.
