Zantac & Other Heartburn Medications Contain a Known Carcinogen

Zantac Found to Contain NDMA

In September, the FDA discovered that Zantac (generic name: ranitidine) contained NDMA, a "probable human carcinogen" in the FDA's database. While the FDA has not publicly demanded a recall of ranitidine products, it has urged drug makers to adopt a new testing method that uses lower temperatures; high-temperature tests allegedly produce higher levels of NDMA. It has also advised patients to consult with their doctors about a non-ranitidine heartburn medication to replace Zantac until conclusive tests are finished.

Walmart, CVS, and Rite Aid have all pulled Zantac and other ranitidine products from their shelves. GlaxoSmithKline, the original developer of Zantac, has voluntarily recalled its ranitidine products, but current owner of the Zantac brand Sanofi has only recalled them in Canada, where regulators requested it. Germany, South Korea, and Bangladesh have all requested recalls of Zantac as well.

NDMA triggered a recall earlier this year for another class of medications; the contaminant was found in blood pressure and heart failure medications several months ago. In a statement, the FDA called NDMA a "known environmental contaminant and found in water and foods, including meats, dairy products and vegetables."

Pharmaceutical Companies Are Responsible for the Harm They Cause

Like any manufacturer, pharmaceutical companies are responsible for what they make. If their processes, policies, or third-party testers end up causing harm, they need to be held accountable to the people they hurt. Accountability ensures that the people who end up getting hurt receive the resources they need to get better; it also ensures that the company will improve their processes to prevent the same public health risk from occurring again.

Holding companies responsible require demanding internal documents, investigating health claims, and building a strong case in preparation for trial, all of which requires an attorney.
