The FDA has warned that Zantac® may be contaminated with cancer-causing agent NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine) normally used in petroleum-based industrial products. Potential carcinogenic effects of NDMA exposure include, but are not limited to:
• Liver Cancer
• Kidney Cancer
• Stomach Cancer
• Colon Cancer
• Colorectal Cancer
• Prostate Cancer
• Esophageal Cancer
• Pancreatic Cancer
• Uterine Cancer
• Bladder Cancer
• Other Digestive Tract Cancers
Over the last 40 years, several studies have made the case that Zantac® causes cancer. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “NDMA is clearly carcinogenic. There is overwhelming evidence that NDMA is mutagenic and clastogenic.”
In response to the September 2019 FDA announcement, retailers like CVS and Walgreens pulled Zantac® and over-the-counter generics from their shelves, citing the link between Zantac® NDMA and cancer. In October 2019, Sanofi announced a Zantac® recall of its own in the United States and Canada, and the U.K. unit of Teva Pharmaceuticals, the largest generic drug maker in the world, recalled batches of ranitidine.
With countless people now stricken with cancer after taking Zantac®, many are turning to the courts and filing a Zantac® lawsuits to hold Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim accountable for their reckless disregard for human health and willingness to put profit over people. Florida resident Joseph L. Galimidi filed the first individual Zantac® lawsuit in the United States against Sanofi on Sept. 13, 2019. Galimidi had been taking Zantac® since 2009 and developed breast cancer, which is rare in men, in 2013. A Colorado resident Mark Allan Blake also filed a Zantac® lawsuit against Sanofi US Services Inc., Chattem, Inc., Boehringer Ingelheim, Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline on Oct. 21, 2019.
