There is evidence that Zantac is contaminated with a carcinogen recognized as such by the World Health Organization, the US Food, and Drug Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) exists in numbers high enough for some Zantac makers to pull the dangerous drug from store shelves.

Zantac Cancer Lawyers Are Investigating Claims that the Heartburn Drug Causes Cancer
Our lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP, are reviewing reports of cancer-related to the popular medication Zantac. Zantac and its generic relatives (ranitidine) are available in prescription and over the counter versions. The drug is used to treat heartburn, ulcers, gastrointestinal reflux disease, and other symptoms related to the production of acid by the stomach.
Reports that there are cancers related to the use of Zantac are cause for immediate concern. FDA and similar agencies in Europe have issued warnings to the public. NDMA might be contaminating your Zantac. NDMA is a chemical contaminant that was used to make rocket fuel. It contaminates our food, soil, and many consumer products.
The FDA and independent entities are testing samples of Zantac. They have found levels of NDMA that far exceed the FDA’s allowable safety limit. Connecticut-based online pharmacy, Valisure, checks every medication it dispenses to its consumers. Valisure immediately notified the FDA that it detected high levels of NDMA in Zantac and ranitidine.
Zantac is Being Removed From Shelves
In response to the FDA warnings, some manufacturers of Zantac and ranitidine have issued voluntary recalls of the medications. Some pharmacies have taken this step on their own and stopped selling Zantac in their stores. To protect consumers from the dangers of NDMA, Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS have suspended sales of all or some Zantac and ranitidine products.
Zantac – Could Individuals Develop Cancer Caused By NDMA
NDMA is a known carcinogen that probably causes cancer in humans. The FDA recognizes NDMA as a known environmental contaminant. It has been used in the production of fuel and is also a byproduct of cured or cooked meats. It is found in various foods, including fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
Dangerous amounts of NDMA can cause a variety of cancers, including colon cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, stomach cancer, and pancreatic cancer. The FDA is in the process of investigating the dangers of NDMA to humans and whether the levels of NDMA in Zantac are cause for concern.
Since last year, the FDA has been investigating the presence of NDMA in a class of heart failure and blood pressure medications. In those cases, the FDA recommended several recalls because levels of NDMA were dangerous to humans.
Filing a Zantac Lawsuit Can Result in Compensation for Your Injuries
When a dangerous drug like Zantac causes cancer, victims can seek to hold the manufacturers responsible. Drug makers have a variety of duties to fulfill. For example, drug manufacturers have responsibilities to conduct safety tests. They also must warn patients and doctors about the risks of taking their drugs.
When drug companies introduce dangerous drugs to the marketplace without adequate testing, warnings, or ensuring they meet established safety standards, injuries that result from using the drugs may result in lawsuits.
If you took Zantac and were diagnosed with cancer, it could be from high levels of NDMA in your medication. Our Zantac lawyers may help you collect compensation for the injuries you have suffered. Compensation from a Zantac lawsuit can include money for:
- Punitive damages
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
- Permanent disabilities
