Zantac is a brand-name form of ranitidine, which is an H2 blocker that’s used to treat heartburn, ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and similar ailments. For years it has been a popular over-the-counter medication that many people used to find regular relief from these common health afflictions. Zantac was recently recalled because of traces of a known cancer causing substance called NDMA being found in the drug.
If you have taken Zantac and been diagnosed with any form of cancer, we strongly advise you to speak with an attorney about the potential for you to have a legal case that could entitle you to compensation.

Recently, Zantac and other drugs containing the compound ranitidine have recently been linked to various forms of cancer. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently called for all Zantac and other ranitidine products to immediately be pulled from the market. Last year, several major drugstore chains stopped selling these drugs, and one such chain even offered refunds for recent purchases. All these extraordinary measures are based on the FDA’s detection of NDMA – a known carcinogen – in Zantac and other ranitidine products.
N-Nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, is a contaminant that both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency of Research on Cancer (IARC) identify as a probable carcinogen. Exposure to high doses of NDMA is closely associated with colorectal and other cancers. Further, NDMA is extremely toxic to the liver and, even in small doses, may cause liver damage.
In April of 2020, the FDA actually issued a market withdrawal of Zantac, which does not rise to the level of an FDA recall. The distinction – according to the FDA – is as follows:
If you have taken Zantac and been diagnosed with any form of cancer in addition to the ones listed on this page, it is critical that you speak with an attorney who is knowledgable and experienced in fighting lawsuits like this against large corporations.
