Over 150 manufacturers of Metformin ER (extended release) have been forced to recall the drug due to high amounts of NDMA found by the FDA to be present in the long acting version of the well-known and widely used diabetes medication. The list of manufacturers can be found at https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/search-list-recalled-metformin-products.
NDMA was the same carcinogen that led to Zantac’s recall earlier this Spring. NDMA was first developed and added to rocket fuel and is commonly used by scientists who wish to study cancer tumors. Mice and other animals are given NDMA to ensure cancerous tumor growths which are then further studied and tested for cancer curing treatments.
