Why You Need a Zantac Lawsuit Lawyer
Zantac and Rantidine 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 drug and major distributors quickly pulled the product from their storefronts.
Further and more extensive research was then conducted and it was found that the amount of NDMA contamination skyrocketed when stock of Zantac was exposed to high temperatures, such as those found when the product was in transit or storage. Put simply, the additional heat led to higher levels of NDMA. Increased levels of NDMA increases the potential risk of cancer in those whom use the heartburn pharmaceutical. 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 cancer
- Kidney or renal cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Nasal cancer
- Colon cancer
- Cancer of the prostate
- Gastric cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Cancer of the esophagus
The dangerous effects of the carcinogen NDMA have been known for decades by the medical science community, with numerous cases of cancer being documented, but the connection to Zantac has only recently been proven. 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. The damage and injuries inflicted on consumers by Zantac and Ranitidine pharmaceuticals has been caused by poor research methods and inadequate testing by these manufacturers.
