Zantac Lawsuit

Zantac is one of the most popular over-the-counter medications in the country, with millions of people using it to relieve heartburn symptoms and chest pain. It’s also a potential cancer risk.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced a recall of Zantac along with all other medications using its active ingredient, Ranitidine. This recall follows new research that found that the Ranitidine used in medications like Zantac was too often contaminated by N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a chemical classified as a probable carcinogen by the FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the World Health Organization. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), NDMA has been linked to a variety of diseases, including severe liver disease, liver cancer, testicular cancer, and lung cancer.


Millions of people used Zantac for years not knowing about the risks they were exposing themselves to, and some users are now suffering from cancer that may have been caused by the drug. Zantac’s manufacturer, Sanofi, had a responsibility to ensure that their customers wouldn’t suffer injury from using their product, and they have failed to meet that responsibility. Zantac users who have suffered injury

deserve compensation, and The Jones Law Firm wants to help them get it. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer after using Zantac, give us a call today for a free consultation. You may be eligible for compensation.


A Hidden Danger


The investigation into NDMA contamination of Ranitidine began in 2019. After Valisure, an independent lab found some evidence of contamination, the FDA and the sellers of Zantac announced a voluntary recall. Zantac was taken off shelves in many places, and people were advised to stop using it until further notice. But as the evidence mounted, the FDA was forced to issue a full recall in April 2020.

Researchers observed that as stock of Ranitidine sat in storage, the NDMA contamination increased. The longer it sat, and the hotter the temperature they were stored in, the worse the contamination got. At this time, we don’t know for how long this dangerous chemical has been contaminating a product that millions of people used every day. Nor do we know how many people have suffered severe health problems as a result.


Holding Them Accountable


Zantac’s manufacturers didn’t do enough to keep their customers safe, and they need to be held accountable for their negligence and the damage they’ve caused. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer after using Zantac, justice and compensation could be within reach. Call us today for a free consultation. You don’t pay anything unless we win your case.
