Zantac, the popular heartburn medication, was recently pulled from shelves
after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) informed the public that
the drug could contain cancer-causing contaminants. This contamination
has led countless consumers to develop various dangerous cancers, including
colon cancer, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, and liver cancer.
If you, or a loved one, developed cancer after taking Zantac, or its generic
equivalent, our team is prepared to help you take legal action against

What is Zantac?
Zantac first hit U.S. markets in 1983 as a prescription medication to treat
a variety of gastrointestinal issues, such as heartburn or acid reflux.
It is an over-the-counter drug, and is also sold under the generic name,
ranitidine. Ranitidine drugs are also available in a prescription-strength
form for the treatment of more serious stomach issues, like ulcers.
In the spring of 2018, Zantac underwent testing, along with several other
similar medications, for a known “probable carcinogenic” chemical
called NDMA. In other words, exposure to certain levels of NDMA may lead
to the development of certain cancers. The study ultimately found high
levels of NDMA in Zantac, leading the FDA to
issue a warning.
Why is Zantac Dangerous?
According to the Zantac-NDMA study, conducted at Valisure, a research lab in Connecticut, the use of Zantac
can be problematic on many levels. The lab discovered that, not only does
Zantac contain alarming amounts of NDMA independently, but it may also
become even more unstable when consumed. In fact, the study revealed that
the human body breaks down Zantac in such a way that it
exposes the consumer to NDMA levels more than 400 times the level deemed
acceptable by the FDA. The FDA later conducted its own tests and confirmed that Zantac and its
generic forms contain hazardous concentrations of NDMA.
Zantac has been associated with the following cancers:
- Bladder Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Liver Cancer
- Small Intestine Cancer
- Stomach Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
