Answer

Administer medical therapy for patients with acute gastritis as needed, depending on the underlying cause and the pathological findings.

The US Food and Drug Administration announced voluntary recalls of ranitidine from the market between December 2019 and February 2020 [3] after raising major concerns in September 2019 about drug contamination with the impurities of the carcinogenic molecule N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). [12] A total withdrawal of all ranitidine products was requested in April 2020. [13]
