The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released an official statement on September 13, 2019 alerting patients and healthcare providers of a safety concern regarding the drug ranitidine. This drug is commonly bought and sold under the brand name, Zantac®. On April 1, 2020, the FDA requested that manufacturers withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine drugs from the market immediately, including Zantac®.
This action followed testing demonstrating toxic levels of a carcinogenic ingredient known as NDMA in certain formulations of Zantac® tablets, capsules, and oral solutions.
In response to these findings, thousands of people across the United States have filed lawsuits against Zantac® drug manufacturers for failing to warn and protect consumers from the drug’s cancer-causing effects.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer or suffered wrongful death as a result of taking toxic Zantac® products, you may be eligible for compensation. Eric Koch can help you determine your eligibility and effectively represent your interests in seeking compensation for your damages.
