Zantac® and NDMA

Recently, investigations by the FDA discovered that ranitidine medicines, including the widely used brand-name drug Zantac®, contain unacceptable levels of NDMA, or N-nitrosodimethylamine, a chemical considered to be a probable carcinogen in humans.

First detected by online laboratory and pharmacy company, Valisure, ranitidine is believed to convert to NDMA once ingested. Further investigation by the FDA determined that levels of NDMA can increase over time due to body temperature or storage in higher-than-normal temperatures.

Testing has shown more than 3 million nanograms of NDMA per tablet, which is significantly more than the amount determined to be safe by the FDA. Valisure issued a petition to the FDA that all over-the-counter and prescription ranitidine products be recalled, and the FDA has now requested that manufacturers pull all ranitidine drugs, including Zantac, from the market immediately, as the drug has been found to pose a public health risk.

Complications of NDMA in Zantac®

Overexposure to the chemical NDMA found in ranitidine products, known as Zantac®, has been linked to cancer and can also cause a number of serious complications including but not limited to:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Jaundice
  • Cramps
  • Dizziness
  • Liver failure
  • Damage to lung and kidney function

Manufacturers Failed to Warn About the Health Risks

Lawsuits are now being filed across the country against Zantac’s® maker, Sanofi, alleging that the company knew the drug could produce dangerous levels of NDMA.

While drug manufacturers have a legal responsibility to warn consumers of any known health risks associated with their products, plaintiffs claim that Sanofi did not properly warn them about the presence of NDMA and the potential cancer risk.

Zantac® Lawsuit FAQs

Ranitidine is the name for the drug marketed under the brand name Zantac®. Most commonly used to treat and prevent heartburn, ranitidine medications have been available in both prescription and over-the-counter versions. The drug has also been used to treat stomach ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and conditions that cause too much stomach acid.

The FDA recently requested that all manufacturers remove prescription and over-the-counter ranitidine products from the market and advised consumers to stop taking any ranitidine tablets or liquid medications they currently have.

To date, a number of companies have issued recalls, including Sanofi, which announced a voluntary recall of all over-the-counter Zantac® tablets. Pharmacies including Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens have also halted sales of ranitidine medications over the health concerns.

For further information on the latest recalls, you can visit the FDA’s website.

If you’ve developed cancer after taking Zantac® (ranitidine), you may be wondering if filing a Zantac® lawsuit is worth it. As a consumer, you have rights and when big drug companies, like Sanofi and others, put their bottom line before your health and safety, they should be held responsible.

If you’ve been affected by the large drug maker, filing a lawsuit won’t change the pain you’ve been forced to endure, but it can provide the financial support you need to cope with your losses and give you the peace of mind to begin moving forward.

You deserve justice and The Wolf Pack is here to help you demand what you’re owed. You could be entitled to substantial compensation to cover losses including but not limited to:

  • Medical bills.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Lost wages and lost potential future earnings.
  • Loss of consortium.
  • Emotional damages.
  • Death benefits if you have lost a loved one.
  • Punitive damages.

Zantac® (ranitidine) was found in independent laboratory testing to contain unsafe levels of a cancer-causing chemical called NDMA. After a number of tests confirmed these findings, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered that ranitidine medications, including Zantac®, be immediately removed from the market and advised all consumers to immediately stop taking the drug.

It has been alleged that Sanofi and other manufacturers of ranitidine medications, like Zantac®, knew about the health risks and failed to warn consumers. As such, lawsuits are currently being filed against the drugmakers and they could be held liable for any harm their products have caused consumers. People who have been diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac® may be able to receive significant compensation to cover their medical bills and other losses related to their cancer diagnosis.

NDMA, or N-Nitrosodimethylamine, is a chemical considered by the FDA and Environmental Protection Agency to be a probable human carcinogen because it can change the DNA of those who are exposed to it. It’s present in many safe products and even in nature, but only in small amounts. In some ranitidine batches, NDMA levels were found to be between 3,000 and 26,000 times higher than what is considered safe for consumption by the FDA.

Ongoing studies by the FDA discovered that ranitidine can convert into NDMA in normal storage conditions, such as those during distribution and consumer homes, and especially in higher temperatures.

On February 6th, 2020, federal judges moved 15 Zantac® lawsuits to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. When similar lawsuits are consolidated, it is known as a multidistrict litigation (MDL). This is typically done to make pretrial processes easier and more effective when there are many lawsuits filed against the same defendants.

The formation of an MDL also allows potentially thousands more people who have also developed cancer after taking Zantac® to join the pending litigation. While the judge may select several individual lawsuits from the MDL to proceed in a formal trial, it is more likely that you would never have to go to court should the drug companies agree on a fair amount to settle all of the lawsuits.

With lawsuits against major drug corporations, compensation is awarded when a settlement is reached with the company in question or a jury verdict is issued. Zantac® litigation is at the beginning and is continuing to grow every day but, at this point in time, it is difficult to predict exactly how much compensation you may be able to receive by filing a lawsuit.

However, drug manufacturers have a legal responsibility to warn consumers of any risks associated with their products. Ranitidine manufacturers never warned consumers about the increased risk of cancer, so if you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer after regularly taking Zantac®, you could be entitled to significant compensation to cover your medical bills and other losses.
