FOR EVERYONE

RANITIDINE (ZANTAC) RECALL:   
The FDA has announced a recall of all over-the-counter and prescription ranitidine and Zantac due to risk of contamination with NDMA, a possible human carcinogen. If you are taking these medications the FDA recommends
disposing of them properly and not buying more; for those who wish to continue treating their condition, they should consider using other approved OTC products. Patients taking prescription ranitidine should speak with their health care professional about other treatment options before stopping the medicine, as there are multiple drugs approved for the same or similar uses. To date, the FDA's testing has not found NDMA in famotidine (Pepcid), cimetidine (Tagamet), esomeprazole (Nexium), lansoprazole (Prevacid) or omeprazole (Prilosec). For more information, visit https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-requests-removal-all-ranitidine-products-zantac-market.

FOR EVERYONE

ATTENTION:  As we enter the political campaign season, our leadership at the highest   levels remind us of DoD's long standing tradition to remain apolitical. For example, Soldiers and civilians may not engage in political activity while on duty (to include telework duty), in a Federal building, or while using government equipment. Political activity includes all political statements, whether verbal, via email, social media, or tweet. Active duty Soldiers are further prohibited from partisan political activity, such as wearing a uniform at a political rally or other activities that could associate DoD with a partisan political activity. While these employees may "follow" "friend" or "like" a political party or candidate running for partisan office, they may not post links to, "share" or "re-tweet" comments or tweets from the Facebook page or twitter account of a political party or candidate     running for partisan office.     All personnel will review the attached memorandum from the Under Secretaryof the Army, along with enclosures 2-4. These documents provide additional important details and guidance regarding permissible and impermissible political activities. Links below
