The Law Offices of Michael R. Herron, P.A.
There are thousands of personal injury attorneys in the U.S. – why should you choose Michael Herron to handle your Zantac lawsuit?
In September of 2019, the United States FDA reported the discovery of a carcinogenic contaminant known as N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in Zantac (ranitidine).
Zantac is a common heartburn medication available in both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) versions.
The FDA advisory states that the level of the contaminant is low, but the levels have been found to be between thousands of times higher than what has previously determined to be safe.
The first Zantac lawsuit was filed in California the day the FDA issued its advisory. Plaintiffs accuse drugmakers Sanofi and Boerhringer Ingelheim of manufacturing, marketing, and selling a product they knew (or should have known) had been contaminated with an industrial chemical which is known to cause cancer.
The exact cause of the NDMA contamination is still under investigation.
However, during the period in which Boerhinger Ingelheim and Sanofi manufactured and marketed Zantac, scientific research demonstrated a clear link between ranitidine, the active ingredient in Zantac, and NDMA. Specifically, when ranitidine comes in contact with water, it creates a chemical reaction that causes the formation of NDMA.
Despite the availability of this information, the drugmakers chose not to disclose this risk to the government or to consumers.

NDMA and Zantac Complications & Symptoms
In addition to causing cancer, NDMA is a potent hepatotoxin. Short-term exposure to NDMA can cause liver damage (such as liver fibrosis and scarring). Long-term exposure can increase the risk of liver, kidney, and lung tumors.
Symptoms of NDMA overexposure include headaches; fever; nausea; jaundice; vomiting; abdominal cramps; enlarged liver; reduced function of the liver, kidneys and lungs; and dizziness.
Other adverse effects that have been associated with Zantac include:
What We Know About NDMA
NDMA is used in aviation and rocket fuel and industrial lubricants. It is also a by-product of several industrial processes, including gasoline refining and the treatment of wastewater containing nitrogen.
Other applications for NDMA include inducing carcinogenesis in laboratory rats for cancer research. NDMA may also be found in a number of food products, such as cured meats, and is an ingredient in tobacco fumes. Fortunately, NDMA does not appear to accumulate in tissues.
Under the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA), NDMA is classified as “extremely hazardous.” Because of this, there are stringent reporting requirements for companies and individuals who produce, store, or use the substance in large amounts.
