In April 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall for all prescription and over-the-counter Zantac products, as well as generic ranitidine. This decision came after an online pharmacy notified the FDA about dangerous levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in tablets of Zantac.
NDMA is a probable human carcinogen found naturally in food and water. Humans can safely consume up to 96 nanograms per day; NDMA levels over 3 million nanograms per tablet were discovered in Zantac.

How Much Is a Nevada Zantac Lawsuit Worth?
