Injured because of Zantac?
The Columbus Zantac attorneys of Rinehardt Law Firm want to hear from you!
What is Zantac?
Zantac (or the generic ranitidine) was a medicine commonly recommended to help reduce stomach acid. It was commonly prescribed to treat ulcers, reflux disease, and chronic indigestion. It was available in both prescription and non-prescription strength.
Is Zantac dangerous?
Yes. Ranitidine products, including Zantac, have been found to contain a contaminant called NDMA, which has been identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a possible cancer-causing substance. This contaminant is present in BOTH prescription-strength and over-the-counter (OTC) varieties of the medicine.
After months of voluntary recalls of Zantac (and other ranitidine products) by individual manufacturers, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a request on April 1, 2020 for ALL manufacturers to remove these products from the market.
What kinds of injuries can Zantac cause?
The types of injuries related to Zantac may include:
- Colon and rectal cancers
- Kidney cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Intestinal cancer
- And more….
Makers of Zantac and other ranitidine products did NOT warn either the public or healthcare providers about the serious cancer risks from taking this medicine.
Do I have a case?
You might have a case against the manufacturer of the ranitidine product you took if you were later diagnosed with cancer. But the time for you to make a claim is limited.
