CVS pulls Zantac and similar heartburn drugs because of cancer worries | CNN

CVS Pharmacy has stopped selling Zantac and other generic heart burn medications due to concerns about one of the ingredients being a carcinogen. The substance, ranitidine, has been found to contain low levels of an impurity that may cause cancer. The FDA did not recommend that people stop taking the medications, but is doing further research to see if the substance is truly something to avoid. As of now, Zantac and generic products can be returned to CVS for a refund.
