FDA Recall of Ranitidine
In April of 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall for manufacturers of prescription and over the counter (OTC) Zantac and any generic forms of this medication, to immediately pull their products off the market because it has determined that the inherently unstable molecules in this potentially dangerous drug can result in its users being exposed to higher than acceptable levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). One reason that these levels may increase to cancer-causing levels after the medication has left its manufacturing plant is because the particles of this medication change over time when stored at higher than room temperatures.
The FDA, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Environmental Protection Agency now classify NDMA as a cancer causing substance.
Compensation for Ranitidine Related Cancers
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a cancer that may be related to ranitidine use, you may be able to seek compensation in a civil lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer for expenses that are a result of the cancer such as medical costs, loss of income, pain, suffering, grief and/or loss.
