What Do Our Attorneys Know About the Zantac Cancer Lawsuits

In mid-September 2019, the FDA reported the discovery of dangerous cancer-causing N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in the over-the-counterand prescription heartburn medication Zantac (ranitidine).

In April 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that all Zantac brand heartburn medication should be pulled from the shelves immediately due to potential contamination by dangerous NDMA.

The initial Zantac heartburn medication legal claimwas filed in the state of California in 2019. In that court case, the injured party accused Sanofi and Boerhringer Ingelheim of producing, marketing and ultimately selling an acid reducing medication they realistically should have identified as being contaminated with the cancer-causing N-nitrosodimethylamine.

The cause of contamination by NDMA remains under a point of contention. However, while in the middle of the time frame whenBoerhinger Ingelheim and Sanofi were manufacturing and marketing Zantac, research indicated an easily identifiable link between the key ingredient in the medication and NDMA. The problem is that, when the active ingredient in Zantac is introduced to into the human body or exposed, it initiates a chemical reaction that results in the formation of N-nitrosodimethylamine.

Even with the abundance of available information, the drug manufacturer made the decision not to explain the risk to its users or the government.

What You Should Know Regarding NDMA

NDMA was used in rocket fuel, but this use was stopped after unexpectedly high levels of the dangerous organic compound were found in samples from the air, water and soil collected near a fuel manufacturing facility. This compound is also a byproduct of different processes, like treatment of wastewater that contains nitrogen. It is also used injected into animals during lab studies to induce carcinogenesis and tumor formation.

NDMA can also be used to create carcinogenesis in lab rats to aid in cancer research. The frightening compound may also be found in cured lunch meat, and it is also found in tobacco fumes.

Under the EPCRA, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is classified as “extremely hazardous.” This classification means there are strict requirements in place for reporting for businesses and people who manufacture, store or use NDMA In significant amounts.
