Why Was Zantac Pulled from the Market?

Third-party testing in 2019 revealed that Zantac and ranitidine products contain high levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). This substance has been classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a probable human carcinogen, meaning that the substance may cause cancer.

Third-party testing in 2019 showed levels of NDMA higher than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) acceptable daily intake level. The FDA recommends that humans consume no more than 96 nanograms (ng) of NDMA each day. During third-party testing, Zantac and ranitidine products contained as much as 3 million ng per tablet.

This extremely high level is especially concerning because many people take prescription-strength Zantac or ranitidine, or take daily doses. This means that exposure to high levels of NDMA is more likely. Similarly, it is more likely that patients have been exposed to NDMA over time.

The basis of Zantac lawsuits is that the product did not contain a warning about NDMA and cancer risk. Therefore, patients and doctors did not know there was a risk. Had the patient and/or doctor been aware of the risk, they may have chosen a different medication and, consequently, would not be dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
