Zantac Linked to Cancer
The FDA has recalled Zantac as it has been linked to cancer, birth defects, and even death.
Zantac, generically known as ranitidine, is a popular medicine used to treat heart burn, indigestion, and gastrointestinal disorders. On April 1, the FDA recalled all ranitidine products, as research shows it can produce high levels of Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a cancer-causing chemical. Studies have also found that NDMA can cause birth defects in mice, and many believe that this could happen to a human fetus if a mother took Zantac during pregnancy.
Individuals are filing cases against Zantac’s manufacturers claiming that they were exposed to extremely high levels of NDMA.
You may be entitled to a substantial settlement if you took Zantac and your child was born with birth defects, or if you were diagnosed with any of the following:
- Liver cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Other digestive tract cancers
Hold Bad-Acting Companies Responsible
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the World Health Organization have stated that NDMA is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Due to the toxic nature of NDMA, the FDA advises people not to consume more than 96 nanograms of NDMA a day. Previous testing found that there are more than 3,000,000 ng in one Zantac pill.
Zantac’s manufacturers, including Sanofi, had the obligation to warn users of the drug’s possibly harmful side effects, but waited until after the FDA conducted research and released advisories about Zantac’s health risks. Hold companies like Sanofi accountable for marketing a product that contains a cancer-causing chemical.
