Zantac®Lawsuit Attorneys in Alabama
Representing Nationwide Victims of the Defective Drug Zantac®
On September 9, 2019, Valisure, an online pharmacy licensed in 38 states, submitted a “Citizen Petition” to the FDA asking the regulatory agency to request a recall and suspend sales of ranitidine, a popular drug commonly sold under the brand name Zantac®.
Valisure detected “extremely high levels” of N-Nitrososdimethylamine (“NDMA”), a probable human carcinogen, “in every lot tested, across multiple manufacturers and dosage forms of the drug ranitidine [Zantac®].” The FDA’s daily intake limit for the carcinogen NDMA is 96 ng. Valisure detected NDMA in excess of 3,000,000 ng per tablet of Zantac®. Valisure’s testing showed that a single Zantac® tablet contains the same amount of NDMA as 30 packs of cigarettes.
Within 4 days of receiving Valisure’s Citizen Petition, the FDA notified the public that NDMA had been found in ranitidine medicines, including Zantac®. Within weeks, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of Zantac® issued nationwide recalls.
Early investigation raises concerns that pharmaceutical companies knew that Zantac® greatly increased a person’s likelihood of developing cancer but altered the science to hide the association between Zantac® and NDMA.
Exposure to NDMA is associated with the following cancers:
- Colorectal cancer
- Stomach/gastric cancer
- Small intestine cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Liver cancer
- Prostate cancer (60 years or younger)
- Pancreatic cancer
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Multiple myeloma
