Zantac Recall

Zantac Recall

ZANTAC RECALLED DUE TO POTENTIAL CANCER RISK

On April 1, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled all prescription and over-the-counter Zantac (Ranitidine) drugs from the market. This was the latest step in a long running investigation related to contaminated Zantac. The FDA determined that the contaminate known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) increased over time and when stored at room temperatures may expose consumers to unacceptable levels of NDMA.

NDMA is a known human carcinogen – meaning is could cause cancer. Lawsuits claim that Zantac cause the following types of cancer:

  • Bladder Cancer
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Esophageal Cancer
  • Intestinal Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Stomach Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Uterine or Ovarian Cancer

Yaeger Law is investigating cases in which patients took Zantac or generic forms of Rantidine and then developed certain cancers. If you or a loved one experienced injuries related to Zantac, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Yaeger Law to discuss the details of your potential Zantac Lawsuit.
