Improper use of cleaning supplies at home can be dangerous to your health — even deadly.
The recall includes all Rx & over-the-counter versions of ranitidine, best known by the brand name Zantac. Patients should stop taking it & throw it away. If you have questions – call us at 1-800-222-1222.
Zantac and other heartburn drugs recalled over possible cancer link
FDA orders drugmakers to pull popular heartburn medications that contain trace amounts of a carcinogen.
Myth: Hand sanitizer has the same ingredients as antifreeze &can be fatal to pets if they lick your hand.
Fact. Hand sanitizers have alcohol, antifreeze has Ethylene Glycol. A lick won’t kill a pet, but it’s best to wait to pet your fur baby until your hands aren't wet anymore.

We're adjusting to a new normal of working at home with the kids. As routines change, accidental poisonings increase. We continue to see spikes in exposures to hand sanitizers & cleaning products. Keep meds & chemicals high, in a closed cabinet. Add a lock for extra security!
Cleaning product-related calls are common for us but we have been getting even more than usual over the past few weeks. As you continue to clean & disinfect your home, please note that more is not always better & that cleaning agents should not be mixed. #PreventPoison #COVID19
