Late last year, we discussed early concerns over Zantac and generic brands of ranitidine. In September 2019, a private lab reported that it found unacceptable levels of the carcinogen nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in ranitidine medications. Then, in April 2020, the FDA requested sales of Zantac and all generic ranitidine products to stop and advised anyone who uses the product to cease doing so. The agency found unacceptable amounts of NDMA in some ranitidine medications and determined that levels of the substance could increase the longer a product was stored.
Those exposed to NDMA may be at risk of the following:
- Liver cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Stomach cancer
Now, Arnold & Itkin’s Zantac lawyers are representing those who’ve developed cancer while taking ranitidine products. We’re asserting that Sanofi, the current owner of Zantac, and other producers of ranitidine medications failed to test their products and warn consumers about their dangerous levels of NDMA. This problem is particularly distressing because Zantac became the second $1 billion drug when it was released in the 1980s and was eventually approved for as an over the counter drug in 2004. In other words, a significant amount of people might have had their lives changed because of the pharmaceutical industry’s failure to test for NDMA impurities in ranitidine. This is unacceptable, and we’re ready to hold them accountable.
