(WFSB) – The maker of generic Zantac has issued a voluntary recall of the product sold at several nationwide pharmacies.

Zantac has been in the news since low levels of a chemical that’s been linked to cancer was found in the drug.

Apotex Corporation makes the generic “Ranitidine” tablets sold under that at Walmart and Rite Aid.

The generic Zantac was also sold at Walgreens under the name “Wal-Zan.”

The makers of the brand name drug have not issued a recall.
