Antacid drugs are among some of the most commonly taken drugs in the USA. One of these drugs, Zantac (Ranitidine in its generic form), which is regularly taken by millions, has been recently identified as having a cancer-causing ingredient nearly 3,000 times more than the FDA’s recommended daily limit.
Important Update: FDA Requests Removal of all Zantac Products
On April 1, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it is “requesting manufacturers withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine drugs from the market immediately. This is the latest step in an ongoing investigation of a contaminant known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in ranitidine medications (commonly known by the brand name Zantac).”
Growing evidence suggests that pharmaceutical company Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim, manufacturer of Zantac, allegedly concealed Zantac’s cancer link despite knowledge of its potential cancer-causing effects. Meanwhile the company generated sales of over $1 billion in profit.
Past users of Zantac are now filing Zantac lawsuits in order to hold Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim accountable for blatant disregard for the health of their consumers and endangering the lives of countless numbers of people.
