In 2019, the U.S. and Europe began reviewing the safety of products containing ranitidine after tests showed samples contained trace amounts of NDMA. NDMA is classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a probable human carcinogen, meaning it has the potential to cause cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also considers NDMA and the relating family of N-ni-trosamines to be “potent carcinogens.”
Since 2019, thousands of consumers across the U.S. have filed lawsuits claiming that ranitidine and Zantac manufacturers knew, or should have known, that their products were contaminated with a probable carcinogen. Zantac cancer lawsuits claim that victims have developed:
- Stomach Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Intestinal Cancer
- Colon and Rectal Cancer
- Liver Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Intestinal Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
In addition to potentially causing cancer, NDMA has also been linked to liver damage, even after short-term exposure to ranitidine or Zantac.
So many consumers have come forward that Zantac class-action lawsuits have also been filed. This underscores the enormity of potential litigation as more consumers come forward.
If your law firm is seeking to acquire plaintiffs for a Zantac class-action lawsuit, Legal Conversion Center can help you qualify and retain clients. Our legal intake specialists are highly trained in how to screen clients for potentially complex legal matters like class-action lawsuits.
Why Are People Filing Zantac Lawsuits?
Research has confirmed that some products containing ranitidine, including Zantac, are contaminated with NDMA. In laboratory tests in 2019, an online pharmacy called Valisure tested ranitidine products and found excessively high levels of NDMA.
Tests showed some ranitidine pills had more than 3,000,000 ng (nanograms) per tablet. This is far more than the FDA’s allowed daily intake of just 96 ng. In their own tests, the FDA also found low levels of NDMA that were still above the acceptable daily intake.
What is NDMA?
NDMA is a chemical that is most often used in industrial processes. It can form during the treatment of wastewater with chlorine products. At one time, NDMA was used in the production of rocket fuel, additives for lubricants, softeners for copolymers, and antioxidants. It has been found in byproducts from pesticide manufacturing, rubber and tire manufacturing, foundries, and other industrial processes.
NDMA can also occur naturally. It is found naturally in soil, water, air, and some food products, but at extremely low levels. It can also form when bacteria in soil synthesize certain substances.
Scientists believe that NDMA in ranitidine products was formed when the ranitidine molecule reacted to something during manufacturing, storage, or consumption.
