Zantac Lawsuit Attorneys
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac, Provost Umphrey is seeking justice for you.
Zantac, also known as ranitidine, is an over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription H2 blocker used to treat heartburn, GERD, esophagitis, gastritis and other problems of the stomach or esophagus.
UPDATE: On April 1, 2020, the FDA requested the removal of all ranitidine products from the market due to the levels of NDMA found in laboratory testing.
In September 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Zantac contains low levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). NDMA is currently classified as a probable human carcinogen meaning it is a substance that could cause cancer. These findings were based on laboratory results. Zantac’s manufacturer called for a voluntary recall of the following products:
- Zantac 150®
- Zantac 150® Cool Mint
- Zantac 75®
After the FDA’s notice, Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Target, Rite-Aid, and Walmart pulled medication containing NDMA from its shelves.
