Zantac Linked to Cancer

Alert – All Zantac and ranitidine products have been recalled by the FDA due to the presence of NDMA, a contaminant heavily linked to many types of cancer. If you or a loved one took Zantac or ranitidine and have ever been diagnosed with cancer during or after use, you need to speak with an attorney regarding potential compensation from the companies that made, marketed and sold these products.

Zantac (ranitidine), one of the world’s most used antacid drugs, has recently been linked to cancer due to presence of carcinogenic contaminant, NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine). This compound is classified as a potentially dangerous cancer-causing agent, and is used in gasoline, rocket fuel, as a stabilizer in industrial materials and as an additive to lubricants. Lawsuits filed against the manufacturer maintain that Zantac contains levels of NDMA that are 26,000 times higher than the levels allowed by the FDA.

Individuals who take Zantac, or its generic equivalent for heartburn may want to consider other options. In recent days, major drugstore chains have pulled these products from the shelves.

This problem came to light in June when an online pharmacy that conducts its own quality testing came across a problem with ranitidine, better known by the brand name Zantac. Valisure founder and CEO David Light says the company had recently started doing safety tests for drugs, and one of his colleagues suggested that they look at ranitidine. The results were a shock. “We found dramatically high amounts of NDMA.” Light said.
