The FDA has recalled Zantac as it has been linked to cancer, birth defects, and even death.
Zantac is a popular medicine used to treat heart burn, indigestion, and gastrointestinal disorders. On April 1, 2020, the FDA recalled Zantac, as research shows it can produce high levels of Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a cancer-causing chemical. Studies have also found that NDMA can cause birth defects in mice, and many believe that this could happen to a human fetus if a mother took Zantac during pregnancy.
Individuals are filing cases against Zantac’s manufacturers claiming that they were exposed to extremely high levels of NDMA.
You may be entitled to a substantial settlement if you took Zantac and your child was born with birth defects, or if you were diagnosed with any of the following:
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the World Health Organization have stated that NDMA is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Due to the toxic nature of NDMA, the FDA advises people not to consume more than 96 nanograms of NDMA a day. Previous testing found that there are more than 3,000,000 ng in one Zantac pill.
Hold Bad-Acting Companies Responsible
Zantac’s manufacturers, including Sanofi, had the obligation to warn users of the drug’s possibly harmful side effects, but waited until after the FDA conducted research and released advisories about Zantac’s health risks. Hold companies like Sanofi accountable for marketing a product that contains a cancer-causing chemical.
The team at Pintas and Mullins has extensive experience in multiple product liability cases, including Zantac.
If you have taken Zantac, or a combination of Zantac and ranitidine, and are now suffering from cancer, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
