Woolworths staff seen throwing and kicking boxes of groceries in viral video

<p><span>A Brisbane shopper has hit out at Woolworths after he caught workers flinging and kicking boxes of groceries down the aisles in a Queensland store.</span></p> <p><span>Michael Langanis was visiting a Woolworths store in Banyo, northside of Brisbane on Saturday night when he saw and filmed the incident.</span></p> <p><span>“Went into Banyo Woolworths on Saturday night to buy a few groceries and this is what I witnessed! This is what they call stocking the shelves?” Langanis wrote on Facebook alongside his video. </span></p> <p><span>“Meanwhile there are still customers in the store dodging flying boxes full of groceries we purchase. Imagine what they get up to when no one’s there! </span></p> <p><span>“It’s pretty shocking. Especially to do this in front of customers! Low standards that’s for sure…”</span></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fmichael.langanis%2Fvideos%2F10206317911104700%2F&amp;show_text=0&amp;width=220" width="220" height="476" style="border: none; overflow: hidden;" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe></p> <p><span>Some commenters expressed concern over the staff’s conduct.</span></p> <p><span>“This is horrific. That store is in shambles,” one commented.</span></p> <p><span>“Just wrong – lack of care, concern or respect,” another added.</span></p> <p><span>However, others claimed it is a common practice in retail.</span></p> <p><span>“I worked nightfill for years and this is the way things have been forever. Frozen foods need to get away as fast as possible,” one shared.</span></p> <p><span>“They put the boxes down first (should be gentler though) from the entire pallet, and then fill everything. Saves walking to the pallet and back 1000 times and getting in each other’s way,” another wrote. “There’s often not an option of waiting until the stores close to get their loads done completely. It’s not a flawless method I agree but it happens.”</span></p> <p><span>A Woolworths spokesperson told <em><a href="https://au.news.yahoo.com/shopper-films-woolworths-employees-throwing-boxes-brisbane-store-074457262.html">Yahoo News Australia</a> </em>that the practice found in the footage “is clearly at odds with the standards we expect”. </span></p> <p><span>“Our customers quite rightly expect the products in our stores to be in the best possible condition when they buy them,” the spokesperson said.</span></p> <p><span>“We are addressing this with the store team and reiterating the importance of moving stock carefully and safely.”</span></p>

Kyle Sandilands blasts Channel 9 over its treatment of Karl Stefanovic

<p>Kyle Sandilands has put Channel 9 on blast after the way they treated Karl Stefanovic, as he says the TV star should be reinstated as the<span> </span><em>Today<span> </span></em>show co-host immediately.</p> <p>Speaking to<span> </span><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/morning-shows/kyle-sandilands-blasts-channel-9-over-its-treatment-of-karl-stefanovic/news-story/8de5f38fd93dc4f77a6ae1cb21e7c54e" target="_blank"><em>news.com.au</em></a><span> </span>shortly after he was interviewed by Stefanovic in stage at the recent Radio Alive conference in Brisbane, the shock jock didn’t hold back when asked for his opinion on the struggling<span> </span><em>Today</em><span> </span>show.</p> <p>“If I was running Channel 9 I would immediately add Karl to Georgie (Gardner) and Deb (Knight),” said the KIIS FM star.</p> <p>“I think Georgie and Deb are great, but they’ve got all these try-hard dudes in there … if they put Karl back in there as the main host with those two female co-anchors, that thing would kick a**e, everyone knows it!</p> <p>“It’s as if they (Channel 9 executives) won’t do it because they’ll look stupid,” said Sandilands. “But you don’t need to be a great programmer to realise that if you put Karl back, everything is fixed.</p> <p>“F**k knows why it’s not done. It should be done right now.”</p> <p>Stefanovic was sacked from the<span> </span><em>Today</em><span> </span>show in December last year while he was on his honeymoon with Jasmine Yarbrough.</p> <p>The Channel 9 star opened up about his axing during a post-Logies event in July, saying: “It wasn’t a great surprise to me – in fact it was a relief in many ways – that I was taken off the<span> </span><em>Today<span> </span></em>show. Because I just wasn’t at my best and you can’t be doing that show unless you’re at the top of your game.</p> <p>“You’ve got to be sharp, you’ve got to be witty, you’ve got to be funny. You’ve got to see the angles, and to be honest, at the end of last year I wasn’t seeing much,” he said.</p> <p>But Sandilands disagrees, saying Stefanovic, whom he considers a “solid friend”, should have been sacked in the first place.</p> <p>“It was just a f**king stupid decision,” he told<span> </span><em>news.com.au</em>. “I believe they (Channel 9 executives) all thought, ‘Women don’t like Karl because him and his wife (Cassandra Thorburn) didn’t last.’ That’s f**king bulls**it.</p> <p>“it’s just not reality,” said Sandilands. “Every chick I know, from 20 year old’s to my mums age, all think Karl is funny and sexy and witty and amazing.”</p>

Peter FitzSimons’ furious rant at Racing NSW boss Peter V’landys

<div class="post_body_wrapper"> <div class="post_body"> <div class="body_text "> <p>An explosive<span> </span><em>7.30 Report</em><span> </span>investigation into the slaughter of Australian racehorses continues to make shockwaves across the industry.</p> <p>After Peter V’landys defended Racing NSW’s efforts to protect horses after they’ve retired, he’s been receiving an increasing amount of criticism. Speaking to Channel 10 on Saturday, he said he was “proud of our animal welfare program where we try to re-home every horse that’s been domiciled in NSW”.</p> <p>The comment pushed sports commentator Peter FitzSimons from Channel 9’s<span> </span><em>Sports Sunday</em><span> </span>over the edge, as he asked, “Mate, what would it take before you’re not proud of it?”</p> <p>FitzSimons suggested the investigation – which claimed hundreds and possibly thousands of racehorses were being sent to slaughter each year – was so concerning that V’landys should reconsider his plan to take over as Australian Rugby League Commission chairman.</p> <p>“I mean this as a serious point,” tweeted FitzSimons. “If I was involved with either racing or the NRL, I would not be happy with V’landys having the dual roles of running Racing NSW and the NRL. He will, and should, have his hands completely full sorting out the atrocities of racing.”</p> <p>Also appalled was fellow<em><span> </span>Sports Sunday</em><span> </span>panelist Richard Freeman, who belongs to a famous horse racing family.</p> <p>“We’ve known for a long time in horse racing the whole future of our sport depends on how we treat the horses,” said Freedman.</p> <p>“Five years ago we have no rules or regulations around how horses were treated once they left racing. We’ve instituted a lot … around the people who are involved in horse racing, but it’s not enough.</p> <p>“What we saw on Thursday night … it was sickening. I’ve been around horse racing for 50 years. I couldn’t watch what I was seeing.”</p> <p>But Freedman jumped to V’landys’ defence, saying he shouldn’t be singled out.</p> <p>“In Peter’s defence he’s the first to institute some rules and regulations, which we had none of five years ago,” he said.</p> <p>“I’ve spoken to Peter privately, and he’s just as appalled as everyone else. He may express it differently and you may take a different view of that, but I can tell you he will not rest until we fix this problem.”</p> </div> </div> </div>

The “real reason” behind Alan Jones’ stoush with Scott Morrison

<p><span>Scott Morrison had become the latest prime minister under Alan Jones’ attack after the radio host accused him of failing drought-stricken farmers in a live interview last week.</span></p> <p><span>On his 2GB breakfast radio show Tuesday, Jones claimed the Morrison government’s Farm Household Allowance was inadequate to <a href="https://www.oversixty.com.au/news/news/i-m-a-farmer-s-son-you-re-not-alan-jones-fires-back-at-scott-morrison-during-tense-interview-about-australia-s-drought-crisis/">provide relief to dairy farmers</a>, saying, “How does that feed a cow?”</span></p> <p><span>The broadcaster expanded on his criticism on the same day on his Sky News show. “The Morrison government tonight has a massive political crisis on its hands,” Jones said. “It can be solved, but it’d want to be solved in a hurry otherwise the political fallout will be terminal.”</span></p> <p><span>According to Niki Savva, political columnist and former adviser to John Howard, there was a <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/finance/business/media/the-real-reason-behind-the-alan-jones-stoush-with-scott-morrison/news-story/1af5c66f2a607ff93109db93ec8c2ce6" target="_blank">personal reason</a> behind Jones’ tirade against Morrison.</span></p> <p><span>“There’s a strong view inside the government that Jones is not prepared to cut any slack for Morrison over what he’s doing… because Morrison sided with Jacinda Ardern and not with Jones,” Savva said on ABC’s <em><a href="https://www.abc.net.au/insiders">Insiders</a></em>.</span></p> <p><span>In August, advertisers began withdrawing from Jones’ program after the shock jock suggested Morrison should “shove a sock down the throat” of New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern.</span></p> <p><span>At the time, Morrison said Jones’ comments were “way out of line” and “very disappointing”.</span></p> <p><span>Savva said Jones is prepared to hit back at Morrison for the PM’s defense of Ardern.</span></p> <p><span>“He’s not been willing to cut him any slack on this, not allowing him to get his messages out properly, as we saw the other day,” Savva said.</span></p>

Why your newspaper today has blacked-out stories on the cover

<p>Media companies from all over Australia are uniting in a surprising front to fight for press freedoms and the public’s right to know what’s happening in Australia.</p> <p>The<span> </span><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.righttoknow.org.au/" target="_blank">Right To Know</a><span> </span>coalition of more than a dozen of the nation’s top media companies and industry organisations are campaigning for change to six critical areas of law that allow a veil of secrecy over matters that are important to all Australians.</p> <p>Some of the media companies taking a stand for press freedom are<span> </span>NewsCorp,<span> </span>ABC<span> </span>and<span> </span>The Guardian.

“For goodness’ sake”: Jacqui Lambie blasts Labor’s deal with the Coalition

<p><span>Independent senator Jacqui Lambie has slammed Labor’s decision to strike a deal with the Coalition government, allowing it to abolish a $4 billion education investment funding and redirect the money to disaster relief.</span></p> <p><span>The opposition signed on to the emergency response fund on Wednesday night despite objections from the education spokeswoman Tanya Plibersek.</span></p> <p><span>“Australian communities will be better prepared to face the threats from natural disasters this summer because of commitments Labor has secured from the government to significantly increase the amount of money spent on disaster preparedness,” said shadow minister for emergency management Murray Watt.</span></p> <p><span>Lambie, who has been pushing for <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/national/breaking-news/lambie-demands-funds-for-tafe-in-tas/news-story/b1a4d349296074cdb7ad1b7a5fc6af9a" target="_blank">up to $100 million</a> in funding to upgrade ageing TAFE facilities in Tasmania, said the government and the opposition were “failing our children” by passing the legislation.</span></p> <p><span>“You may as well have shut down the [Education Investment Fund] and transferred all the money to ‘curling up on a rainy day with the good book fund’,” Lambie told the parliament on Thursday.</span></p> <p><span>“Here they are, the last election, we’re gonna build up our TAFEs. Fifty million bucks? God almighty. I can get more out of the government with just one of me than what you people can with you all together.</span></p> <p><span>“For goodness’ sake.</span></p> <p><span>“What you’ve done is absolutely rip off our kids for the future.”</span></p> <p><span>Watt said while the abolishment of the education fund was disappointing, the government’s commitment to provide an additional $50 million per year to TAFE encouraged Labor to lend support to the emergency response fund bill.</span></p> <p><span>“As a result of climate change, we do face the certainty of increased frequency and scale of natural disasters into the future,” Watt told the upper house.</span></p> <p><span>The Greens <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/oct/17/labor-agrees-with-coalition-to-redirect-education-funding-to-disaster-relief" target="_blank">lambasted the arrangement</a>, with Senator Mehreen Faruqi saying that Labor “used to be the party of public education”.</span></p> <p><span>Some Labor MPs, including Plibersek and former research minister Kim Carr, have also expressed objections over the fund diversion. Last month, Carr said shutting down a dedicated national research infrastructure fund “is to court disaster”.</span></p>

Hundreds of racehorses sent to slaughterhouses for pet and food consumption

<p><span>Racehorses are being slaughtered in New South Wales and Queensland for pet food and human consumption, an <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-18/slaughter-abuse-of-racehorses-undermines-industry-animal-welfare/11603834" target="_blank"><em>ABC </em></a>investigation has revealed.</span></p> <p><span>The practice is occurring “on an industrial scale” at abattoirs and knackeries despite industry rules and animal welfare policies, the report found.</span></p> <p><span>The <em>ABC </em>found dozens of thoroughbreds were sold to NSW knackeries and abattoir to be used for pet food production and human consumption.</span></p> <p><span>“We’re talking about destroying animals on an industrial scale,” said Paul McGreevy, professor of animal behaviour and welfare science at the University of Sydney. “I don’t think anyone in the industry can defend this.”</span></p> <p><span>In one Queensland abattoir, 300 racehorses were slaughtered in just 22 days. According to Elio Celotto of the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses, the Meramist Abattoir slaughters an estimated 500 horses a month for imports to Japan and various European countries.</span></p> <p><span>The workers at the abattoir were also recorded beating and abusing the horses before the slaughter.

Pauline Hanson breaks down on Alan Jones’ show: “Give me an opportunity to keep fighting”

<p>One Nation leader Pauline Hanson broke down in tears on Alan Jones’ morning radio show during a discussion about the plight of dairy farmers in Australia. </p> <p>The politician spoke about her fight to introduce a code of conduct so dairy farmers are given a guarantee for farmgate price for their milk. </p> <p>Senator Hanson has gotten the support of Labor and various crossbench senators, but was still opposed by the Coalition and independent politician Cory Bernardi.</p> <p>Hanson had an emotional moment during the show where she broke down in tears. </p> <p>"Give me an opportunity to keep fighting," she told Jones on 2GB.</p> <p>"I don't want these farmers to give up."</p> <p>Jones went on to speak about Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s comments about farmers on Thursday.</p> <p>When Senator Hanson began to talk again, Jones interrupted and urged her to “go and have a rest”. </p> <p>"She's worn out, as are the farmers."</p> <p>Jones also choked back tears on Tuesday during his Sky News show. </p> <p>He criticised the Prime Minister for his handling of the drought. </p> <p>"I begged him to provide food, water and freight so farmers wouldn't have to send their breeding stock to slaughter. He just didn't understand," Jones said.</p> <p>"Canberra had better start understanding the gravity of the situation it's not addressing.</p> <p>"There must be a moratorium on bank debt. There must be help with water and electricity. Where things stand politically today is this: drought and the farmer are now a massive political issue."</p> <p>On Friday morning, Jones suggested Mr Morrison was referring to himself when he described people being “panicked” about the drought. </p> <p>"I mean, a lot of people are running around at the moment getting all panicked and wanting crisis measures," the Prime Minister told 2SM on Thursday. </p> <p>"Well, no, look, we just need to keep our heads, keep our discipline, not go and blow the Budget."</p>

And getting some headspace by jumping in the pool and doing my laps most days, is probably one of the most important things I do in terms of managing that,” he says.</p> <p>“People obviously need me to be at my best, and in order to do that, I’m quite disciplined about ensuring that I have those opportunities built into my program.

Pain relief without the risks: World-first discovery of opioid alternative found in Tasmanian mud

<p>Australian scientists think they have found the world’s first alternative to opioid pain relief. </p> <p>The catch?

Alan Jones breaks down in tears over drought crisis and Scott Morrison interview

<p>An emotional Alan Jones was reduced to tears on his television show as he described the struggles drought-stricken farmers are currently going through, while criticising Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the process.</p> <p>The PM sat with Jones on his 2GB breakfast radio show yesterday morning where the shock jock interrogated him with questions regarding the action he’s taking to help desperate primary producers.</p> <p>Morrison’s answers didn’t hold weight and the pair were embroiled in a tense exchange, garnering media attention across the country.</p> <p>Addressing the incident on his Sky News program Jones &amp; Credlin, Jones slammed the response that came out of Canberra, and in doing so, he cracked.</p> <p>“The Prime Minister today on radio with me has disappointed millions of Australians,” he said.</p> <p>“I begged him to provide fodder, water and freight so farmers wouldn’t have to send their breeding stock to slaughter. He just didn’t understand.”</p> <p>The radio star spoke about a call he received from a farmer 10 minutes before he interviewed Morrison, in which the man began to cry about having to sell off his stock.</p> <p>Jones then addressed a listener named Mary, who had contacted him and urged him to keep up the pressure on political figures.</p> <p>“We will fight because I have been exactly where the people of Bourke are,” he said. “My old man would be ashamed of me if I didn’t fight. I can’t speak for Canberra …”</p> <p>A clearly emotional Jones then struggled to speak, as he put his hands up asking to “take a break”.</p> <p>“Look sorry about that,” he said when the show returned.</p> <p>After taking a number of calls from angry listeners, Jones then delivered a stark warning to the PM.</p> <p>“The Morrison government tonight has a massive political crisis on its hands. It can be solved, but it’d want to be solved in a hurry otherwise the political fallout will be terminal.”</p>

“I’m a farmer’s son, you’re not”: Alan Jones fires back at Scott Morrison during tense interview about Australia’s drought crisis

<p>Prime Minister Scott Morrison gave an explosive interview with Alan Jones this morning, as Jones increasingly grew agitated at Morrison’s responses to the government’s drought relief policies.</p> <p>"Can I ask you this. Why, if the drought response is adequate, would a farmer write to me and say this – and I don't mean to offend, I'm just telling you what he said – 'So you're going to interview Morrison. Why bother? I guarantee Australia will have no more confidence in the Morrison government after your interview than before. I guarantee there'll be no admission from Morrison that his government is seriously lacking in a number of crucial matters,'" Jones said, according to<span> </span><em><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/leaders/australian-politics-live-tuesday-october-15/live-coverage/aa1e9d0bad1dde2f507f48d4fea10a3c" target="_blank">news.com.au</a></em>.</p> <p>"What I'm doing is exactly what I told the Australian people I was going to do. Whether it's on energy, on water, our support for farmers in the drought, and we just finished the most recent financial year, where we put an additional $318.5 million in additional support to farmers," Mr Morrison said.</p> <p>Jones was fired-up as he had received personal calls from farmers who cannot afford food and water for their livestock and were sending them to slaughter and criticised the Farmers Household Allowance scheme.</p> <p>The scheme gives farmers fortnightly payments and, in some case, lump sum payments of up to $12,000.</p> <p>"You say Farm Household Allowance. Now PM, come on. You go and tell Jenny that she can live on $250 a week."</p> <p>"It's not $250 a week Alan. It's not just that," Mr Morrison said.</p> <p>"If you live in the city, and your business goes bust or you lose your job, then you have access to Newstart. But if you are on a farm property and you get access to the Farm Household Allowance."</p> <p>"Why are they walking off? Why are they sending their cattle to slaughter?" Jones pressed.</p> <p>Morrison didn’t budge, and Jones’ frustrations boiled over.</p> <p>"Oh don't talk to me, I'm a farmer's son and you're not," he snapped.</p> <p>Morrison eventually relented and said the government can’t “make it rain”.</p> <p>"The government, whether it's state, federal or anyone else, we can do a lot of things to try and help people get through this. But the government can't make it rain, and it can't make life as it was before the drought," he said.</p> <p>"We both want the same thing. We want the farmers to be able to get through this drought. But we can't kid ourselves that there's a magic wand and a magic cash splash that's going to make this thing totally solved."</p> <p>2GB listeners are furious after hearing the interview, saying that Morrison is a “waste of space”.</p> <p>"I'm just devastated. This guy's a waste of space. I just can't believe it," said Jim.</p> <p>"My blood's boiling after hearing that. I'll describe it, right. Complete failure as a Prime Minister. He's arrogant. They've been conning the public after the election," said Robert.</p> <p>"As a former one-eyed Liberal, I felt like putting my fist through the radio listening to Scott Morrison this morning," said Anna.</p>

"He made it up": Police hit back at motorist fined for drinking water while driving

<p>Police have confirmed a motorist who claimed he was fined for drinking water made up the fine. </p> <p>However, QLD police have warned drivers they could still be prosecuted for taking a sip of any liquid -whether water or not -  if they are caught being reckless behind the wheel.</p> <p>Brock Harris, from Beaudesert, west of Gold Coast, said he was pulled over as he was turning into his driveway after working 12 hours in 39C heat. </p> <p>Mr Harris told radio listeners on<span> </span>ABC Radio Brisbane<span> </span>he was handed a $173 fine as well as one demerit point for driving with due care and attention. </p> <p>“As I was pulling into my street I was pulled over by the police and told it was illegal to drink anything while driving,” he told ABC’s Rebecca Levingston at the time. </p> <p>“If it is against the law then I’ll pay the fine, but it’s not compassionate to fine someone on a 39-degree day (for trying to) stay hydrated.</p> <p>“The policeman told me there was nothing I could do and he was doing his job — but I am going to challenge the fine.”</p> <p>While QLD Police have confirmed the fine was not issued to Mr Harris, the state’s Police Superintendent David Johnson told the ABC motorists must still be cautious behind the wheel. </p> <p>“There are many people who consume drinks while driving and do it safely in a safe manner,” he said. </p> <p>“For us to issue a fine we have to look at the circumstances to see if the driver's actions are causing risks to themselves or others.</p> <p>“Driving without due care and attention was once put before court, but these days it’s a traffic infringement notice that is issued.</p> <p>Driving without due care and attention carries a $533 fine and three demerit points, according to the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads website.</p>

“Disgraceful”: Bathurst tactics under review as McLaughlin claims controversial win

<p>Officials are set to re-open an investigation into Supercars driver Fabian Coulthard’s “disgraceful” behaviour during a late safety car period at the Bathurst 1000.</p> <p>Coulthard is allegedly being looked into after he decided to slow down dramatically and hold up the field behind his Ford teammate Scott McLaughlin, who went to claim his maiden Great Race on Sunday.</p> <p>He was hit with a drive-through penalty during the race as he breached safety car procedures, but officials are now taking a look at the incident for the second time to see if it influenced the outcome of the 161-lap race.</p> <p>Coming third-place at the time, Coulthard slowed down and backed up the rest of the field as top two Jamie Whincup and McLaughlin raced to their garage for a pit stop to get much-needed fuel during the safety car period with 26 laps left.</p> <p>His slow pace ensured he avoided double stacking or being forced to wait behind his teammate McLaughlin in the pits.</p> <p>The team radio showed van Gisbergen was furious about Coulthard’s scheme. “Fabian is going stupidly slow,” he said.</p> <p>“Fabian should get a penalty for that, going stupidly slow. That was shocking.”</p> <p>McLaughlin later went on to claim his first Bathurst title by beating Gisbergen by 0.68 seconds.</p> <p>Supercars legend Larry Perkins said Coulthard’s actions were “disgraceful” on Sunday night.</p>

“Utter disbelief”: Wallabies player’s mother involved in Israel Folau scandal

URGENT: Worldwide recall of common heartburn drug over cancer fears

<p>A popular medicine for heartburn and stomach ulcers known as Zantac has been urgently recalled in all markets over fears that it’s contaminated with a chemical that’s linked to cancer.</p> <p>The Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) at the UK’s Department of Health has sent an alert to healthcare professionals, calling for all unexpired stocks of four types of Zantac to be returned. These four types are made by GlaxoSmithKline.</p> <p>The recall is due to the possible contamination of ranitidine, which is the active substance in the medication that reduces stomach acid levels. There is an impurity that is linked to the development of certain cancers.</p> <p>Traces of the impurity known as N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) are found in some food and water supplies, but can be dangerous at higher concentrations.</p> <p>The four affected products, which are all prescription-only medicine are:</p> <ul> <li>Zantac 150mg/10ml Syrup,</li> <li>Zantac 50mg/2ml Injection</li> <li>Zantac 150mg Tablets</li> <li>Zantac 300mg Tablets<span> </span><span> </span> </li> </ul> <p>Doctors have been told to stop supplying the product immediately and to return all remaining stock to their supplier, according to <em><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/zantac-cancer-ranitidine-recall-heartburn-drug-prescription-gsk-health-a9148401.html" target="_blank">The Independent</a>.</em></p> <p>It’s important to note that over-the-counter products that also bear the Zantac name are made by a different company and therefore are unaffected.</p> <p>Dr Andrew Gray, MHRA deputy director of inspections, enforcement and standards, said: “Whilst this action is precautionary, the MHRA takes patient safety very seriously.</p> <p>“Patients should keep taking their current medicines but should speak to their doctor or pharmacist if they are concerned and should seek their doctor’s advice before stopping any prescribed medicines.”</p> <p>He added: “Currently, there is no evidence that medicines containing nitrosamines have caused any harm to patients, but the agency is closely monitoring the situation, and working with other regulatory agencies around the world.”</p>
