Have you or a loved one taken Zantac or generic ranitidine, for heartburn? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has detected that this drug contains a cancer-causing chemical called, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). Recent lawsuits against Sanofi, the manufacturer of Zantac, claim that Zantac’s levels of NDMA are over 26,000 times the allowed amount under FDA regulation. If you or a loved one have taken Zantac or ranitidine you or your loved one may be entitled to compensation.
SIDE EFFECTS FROM NDMA
NDMA is an environmental contaminant. It can be found in water, meat, dairy and vegetables but shouldn’t be found in your medication, especially in medicine commonly taken for heartburn and acid reflux. Just small levels of NDMA can cause liver damage. High levels of NDMA can cause gastric or colorectal cancer.
NDMA was once used to make rocket fuel. It is also a byproduct of many manufacturing processes for products like pesticide, rubber, and gasoline. Millions of Americans regularly use Zantac or ranitidine medications for ulcers, heartburn, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Many drug companies and manufacturers are voluntarily announcing recalls for this popular but dangerous heartburn medication, as well as many generic ranitidine products. The damage that they could potentially cause is serious. Whether you have taken ranitidine tablets or syrup, you may be at risk.
