Does Zantac Cause Cancer?
In April 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested the withdrawal of all Zantac and its generic version, ranitidine, from the market. This decision came after online pharmacy Valisure discovered dangerous levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in ranitidine medications.
NDMA is a probable human carcinogen. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), animal studies have shown that NDMA exposure caused tumors in the kidneys, blood vessels, liver, and respiratory tract. Humans can safely consume up to 96 nanograms of NDMA per day, and Valisure discovered NDMA levels up to 3 million nanograms per Zantac tablet.
How Do You Qualify for a Zantac Lawsuit?

- You were diagnosed with cancer.
- You took Zantac or generic ranitidine for at least one year.
