REPRESENTING CLIENTS ACROSS THE U.S.
In September 2019, the FDA announced that it found levels of N-nitrosodimethlylamine (NDMA), a chemical linked with certain cancers, in Zantac® heartburn medication (ranitidine). It was discovered that each Zantac® tablet may contain 3,000 to 26,000 times the FDA approved safe amount of NDMA.
Zantac® failed to warn consumers of the level of NDMA in the product and the potential dangers it could cause.Those who took Zantac® for three months or more and developed stomach, liver, colon, intestinal, prostate or kidney cancer may be eligible for compensation.
HOW DOES ZANTAC® CAUSE CANCER?
Ranitidine, the active ingredient in Zantac®, reacts when it is exposed to high temperatures, such as those in the human body or in a hot car. The heat causes ranitidine to produce dangerous levels of NDMA, thousands of times higher than the level that the FDA considers safe.
High levels of NDMA have been strongly linked to multiple types of cancer including:
- Stomach cancer
- Liver cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Colon cancer
- Intestinal cancer
- Prostate cancer
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) list NDMA as a compound that is carcinogenic to humans. NDMA is also commonly used in research laboratory settings to induce cancer in rats.
COMPENSATION FOR ZANTAC® CANCER PATIENTSConsumers are taking legal action against Zantac® for failing to warn consumers of the dangerous NDMA chemicals on the product label. Many Zantac® users have now developed cancer, which may have resulted from the extended use of the ranitidine heartburn medication. You are may be eligible for a compensation claim IF:
- You’ve been diagnosed with one of the associated cancers (stomach, liver, colon, intestinal, prostate or kidney)
- You used Zantac® for three months or more before your diagnosis
