Are You At Risk?

Zantac Lawsuits

In April 2020, the FDA ordered the removal of all Zantac (ranitidine) products from the market. This decision was made due to concerns about the presence of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a human carcinogen, which could form in ranitidine products over time and when exposed to heat.

NDMA present in Zantac could lead to various types of cancer, including but not limited to:

  • Bladder
  • Breast
  • Colorectal
  • Esophageal
  • Gastric/Stomach (No Intestinal)
  • Kidney
  • Liver
  • Pancreatic
  • Prostate

If you used Zantac, Zantac75, Zantac 150, or Zantac Extra Strength for at least one year, and already have been diagnosed with cancer, you could be eligible for significant compensation.


What is Zantac?

Zantac, the brand name for ranitidine, is a medication used to reduce stomach acid production. People take Zantac to treat and prevent heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and stomach ulcers. The Zantac lawsuits are about allegations that the drug contained a human carcinogen called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). NDMA is classified as a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
