The Food and Drug Administration announced Friday that low levels of a cancer-linked chemical have been found in samples of the heartburn medication Zantac.

The chemical is an impurity called NDMA, which has been linked to an increased risk for colorectal and uterine cancers.

The FDA said that low levels of NDMA were found in samples of ranitidine, a drug used to treat and prevent heartburn by reducing stomach acid. It''s unclear where the contamination originated. NDMA is the same chemical that lead to multiple recalls of blood pressure medicines this past year.
