Zantac and Ranitidine Cancer Lawsuits
Zantac and Ranitidine were originally recalled on a voluntary basis in 2019 after an independent laboratory detected NDMA contamination in a controlled study. The FDA immediately put out a notice to Zantac consumers to stop ingesting the pharmaceutical. High levels of NDMA increases the potential risk of cancer. Here are the most common types of cancer associated with products which have been contaminated with NDMA, such as Zantac and its generic offshoots:
- Liver or Colon Cancer
- Kidney and Renal Cancer
- Stomach or Gastric Cancer
- Prostate and Testicular Cancer

The simple fact of the matter is that Zantac and Ranitidine manufacturers did not properly nor thoroughly test their products as recommended by federal guidelines and regulations and must now be held accountable. If you were prescribed Zantac or a generic drug containing Ranitidine and have now been diagnosed with cancer or another type of illness, you deserve legal compensation for the injuries and damages you have suffered.

Zantac History and Current Litigation
The reason the FDA launched a recall of Zantac (Ranitidine) is due to the alarming discovery that the drug inadvertently produces an extremely toxic chemical called N-Nitrosodimenthylamine, otherwise knows as NDMA. NDMA has long been designated as a deadly carcinogen when absorbed by the human body, often causing cancer and disease to several of the major organs. To make matters worse, Zantac’s main ingredient has been found to produce NDMA in limits that far exceed safety standards put in place by the FDA. Hence the current recall.
The manufacturer of Zantac, Sanofi, along with the producers of several generic brands are required by federal law to only introduce pharmaceuticals to the consumer market they have proven to be safe for consumption by everyday people. By using a chemical as harmful and deadly as Ranitidine, these pharmaceutical companies have failed in their duty to protect average consumers and must now be held accountable for their reckless actions.
