This is an active lawsuit.


Zantac


Zantac, and its active ingredient ranitidine, is used to treat heartburn, indigestion, ulcers, erosive esophagitis, and GERD.

In April 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requested Zantac and its generic forms be withdrawn immediately due to its connection to NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine), a substance that may cause cancer.

The Valisure Pharmacy found that every lot tested across multiple manufactures found extremely high levels of NDMA, a cancer-causing substance.

While the FDA determined people should ingest no more than 96 nanograms of NDMA, Valisure found some Zantac batches to contain more than 2,500,000 ng in Zantac tablets.

The FDA advises consumers of Zantac to stop taking the medication and dispose of any existing supply. Those taking prescription ranitidine should speak to their health care provider about alternatives.

Lawsuits claim manufacturers of ranitidine and Zantac knew they could cause NDMA formation in the body and increase the risk of cancer, but failed to inform the public of the medication's risks.

These lawsuit date back to 1981 when manufacturers of the medication knew the connection between NDMA formation and Zantac.
