ACTIVE INGREDIENT SHOWN TO CAUSE CERTAIN TYPES OF CANCER
Recent studies have shown that Zantac®’s active ingredient, ranitidine, can produce high levels of N-nitrosodimethlylamine (NDMA), a chemical that has been proven to cause certain types of cancer. The levels of NDMA that ranitidine can produce when it reacts to high temperatures are anywhere from 3,000 to 26,000 times the amount that is approved by the FDA. Intense levels of NDMA are often used in laboratories to induce cancer in rats.
The same unsafe levels of NDMA are found in other brand name and generic ranitidine tablets including:
- Novartis / Sandoz
- Rite Aid
- Wal-Zan® (Walgreens)
- equate™ (Walmart)
OFFICIAL FDA RECALL OF RANITIDINE TABLETS
After investigating levels of toxic NDMA in ranitidine since the summer of 2019, The FDA officially announced that all ranitidine products, including Zantac®, should be removed from shelves immediately because of their public health risk.
CNN reported that the FDA recommends all consumers stop using the drug immediately, dispose of it properly, and not buy more. This announcement highlights how truly dangerous the chemicals in ranitidine tablets can be for its users.
