Another drugmaker is recalling heartburn meds due to a possible cancer-causing agent found in the pills.
Mylan N.V. is recalling three lots of nizatidine, a medicine used to treat duodenal ulcers and acid reflux disease. Trace amounts of NDMA, a cancer-causing agent were found in the drug. The drug was manufactured by Solara Active Pharma Sciences Limited.
The recall comes just a few months after Sanofi recalled its over-the-counter heartburn drug Zantac due to a possible contamination with NDMA.
The FDA has shared preliminary results of other antacids it deemed carcinogen-free.
