Zantac Lawsuit – Understanding The Basics
Zantac is one of the leading heartburn medications sold in the USA. On September 13, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that the main active ingredient in Zantac and its generic equivalents is contaminated with a carcinogenic ingredient.
Ranitidine, the active and main ingredient in Zantac, has been shown to contain N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a cancer-causing chemical. After testing many samples of Zantac and its generic equivalents, the FDA found levels of NDMA in excess of 3,000 to 26,000 times above safe levels.
NDMA is a known carcinogenic and has been associated with many different types of cancer. The FDA did not immediately begin recalling medications containing Ranitidine when its report was first released, but it has since started recalling several products and CVS and Walgreens have both pulled all medications containing Ranitidine from their shelves.
