About the Zantac Lawsuit
Edwards & Ragatz is evaluating claims from individuals who were diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac.
Zantac is one of the most popular over-the-counter medications in the country, with millions of people using it to relieve heartburn symptoms and chest pain. It’s also a potential cancer risk.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced a recall of Zantac along with all other medications using its active ingredient, Ranitidine. This recall follows new research that found that the Ranitidine found in Zantac was too often contaminated by N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a chemical classified as a probable carcinogen by the FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the World Health Organization. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), NDMA has been linked to a variety of diseases, including severe liver disease, liver cancer, testicular cancer, and lung cancer.
Millions of people used Zantac for years oblivious to the risks, and some users are now suffering from cancer that may have been caused by the drug. Zantac’s manufacturer, Sanofi, had a responsibility to ensure that their customers wouldn’t suffer injury from using their product, and they failed to meet that responsibility.
At this time, we don’t know for how long this dangerous chemical has been contaminating a product that millions of people used every day. Nor do we know how many people have suffered severe health problems as a result.
Zantac’s manufacturers didn’t do enough to keep their customers safe, and they need to be held accountable for their negligence and the damage they’ve caused. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer after using Zantac, justice and compensation could be within reach. Call us today for a free consultation. You don’t pay anything unless we win your case.
