Zantac® is a popular heartburn available over-the-counter at many pharmacies. It contains the chemical Nitrosodiomethylamine (NDMA).


On September 13, 2019, the FDA issued a warning that the heartburn medicine Zantac® (Ranitidine) contains the cancer-causing chemical Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). The FDA issued a warning after a pharmacy in Connecticut discovered elevated levels of NDMA while testing Zantac®.


It has been reported that the levels of cancer-causing NDMA are anywhere from 3,000 to 26,000 times higher than the legally allowable limit set by the FDA. Zantac® and its generic versions were pulled from shelves of Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens stores after the FDA announced that it had detected the cancer-causing chemical in samples of the drug.


There are medical claims that Zantac® causes high levels of NDMA exposure in users. Recent studies have confirmed that the unstable particles of the medication break down in the digestive tract to create harmful levels of NDMA. Based on these claims, significant NDMA exposure could result from taking brand name or generic Zantac® products, regardless of the manufacturer.


Users were exposed to high levels of Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).


Users suffered from symptoms including but not limited to liver cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer, intestinal cancer, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, esophageal cancer, and testicular cancer.
