Lawsuits are now being filed alleging that Zantac (Ranitidine), marketed as a treatment for heartburn, acid indigestion, sour stomach and GERD may be linked to certain cancers. The allegations are that Zantac produces in the human body high quantities of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a chemical that the World Health Organization has described as “clearly carcinogenic.”4
The alleged related cancers include:
- Small Intestine
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
The FDA recently noted updates to the voluntary recall that had been issued due to unacceptable levels of NDMA. A Zantac cancer lawsuit may help victims recover damages for, medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability or permanent injury, punitive damages and wrongful death. UPDATE: Just yesterday, the FDA announced more recalls of antacids containing traces of carcinogen as well.
