Zantac Linked to Cancer Risk

We help consumers nationwide. Call us today to find out if you have a claim.

Zantac is one of the most popular over-the-counter medications in the country, with millions of people using it to relieve heartburn symptoms and chest pain. It’s also a potential cancer risk. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced a recall of Zantac along with all other medications using its active ingredient, Ranitidine. This recall follows new research that found that the Ranitidine found in Zantac was too often contaminated by N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a chemical classified as a probable carcinogen by the FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the World Health Organization. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), NDMA has been linked to a variety of diseases, including severe liver disease, liver cancer, testicular cancer, and lung cancer. Millions of people used Zantac for years oblivious to the risks, and some users are now suffering from cancer that may have been caused by the drug. Zantac’s manufacturer, Sanofi, had a responsibility to ensure that their customers wouldn’t suffer injury from using their product, and they failed to meet that responsibility.

Zantac is an over-the-counter heartburn medication that was also available in stronger forms as a prescription drug to treat more serious stomach conditions and ulcers. Once one of the world's most popular drugs, Zantac was pulled from shelves in September 2019. The move came after Valisure, an online pharmacy, alerted the US Food and Drug Administration of who found the cancer-causing chemical N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in lots of Zantac. Additionally, the company noted that it also found NDMA in generic forms of the drug, ranitidine.
