OTC Concepts Ltd, Relconchem Ltd, Noumed Life Sciences Ltd and Medreich Plc have recalled all unexpired batches of certain ranitidine 75mg tablets from pharmacies and retail stores.

The latest alert, revealed by PSNC, comes a day after Creo Pharma and Tillomed Laboratories recalled ranitidine medicines.

The recall is a precautionary measure due to the possible contamination with impurity N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).

Pharmacists are asked to stop supplying the recalled products immediately and remove from the store shelves. The stocks should be returned to the supplier through their approved process.

In October, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Teva UK have recalled their ranitidine products soon after US, Swiss and German regulators found “unacceptable” levels of NDMA, which has genotoxic and carcinogenic potential, in the popular heartburn drug.

Omega Pharma Limited, Galpharm International and Rosemont Pharmaceuticals have also recalled their ranitidine products.
