Cases Are Being Consolidated Against Sanofi By Alleged Zantac Cancer Sufferers

Cancer sufferers are joining multi-district litigation and filing suit against manufacturers of blood pressure, heartburn, and diabetes drugs that contain dangerous levels of NDMA

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 - For more than the last decade, Zantac (ranitidine) was the world's best-selling heartburn and acid reflux medicine earning Sanofi, the drug's manufacturer, billions of dollars in revenue every year. Today, thousands of lawsuits are being filed in every corner of the United States claiming plaintiffs have developed cancer from taking Zantac heartburn medicine. In 2019, online prescription drug testing pharmacy Valisure discovered elevated levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a deadly carcinogen, in Zantac tablets at levels thousands of times greater than the FDA allowable limit of 96 nanograms per capsule. There is an ongoing debate as to the cause of the contamination and experts believe that either storing the product at high temperature, the interaction between the chemicals in the tablets and stomach nitrates, or contamination at overseas manufacturing plants is responsible for the anomalies. Valisure immediately filed a citizen's petition with the US Food and Drug Administration to have heartburn medications containing ranitidine taken off of the market and Sanofi immediately and voluntarily complied, allegedly to get to the bottom of the cancer accusations out of an abundance of caution. Later in 2019, the FDA itself demanded that several brands of ranitidine, including Zantac, be recalled. That's where we stand today as far as Zantac is concerned and the legal ramification of manufactures failing to warn the public of the drug's life-threatening health consequences could be staggering.

There is the potential for thousands of plaintiffs to come forward in the months to come if they have used Zantac for a prolonged time regularly and have developed any of the following types of cancer: "Stomach, bladder, breast, colorectal, intestinal, pancreatic, esophageal, prostate and many more. Cases are being accepted by Zantac Lawyers on a contingency fee agreement in most instances and are being consolidated into a multi-district litigation (MDL) to gather repetitive scientific evidence and to streamline discovery, and other administrative court proceedings.

If you have used Zantac or other over the counter or prescription heartburn and antacid medicine and have developed cancer you may wish to speak with a Zantac Cancer Lawyer and join one of the many local groups that have formed and have filed suit. According to, lawsuits are being filed against several leading heartburn medicine manufacturers such as Sanofi, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, and Pfizer.

According to Drug Watch, "The newly formed MDL contains both individual cases alleging personal injuries and punitive class actions seeking refunds and other economic damages. Personal injury cases claim that consumers contracted liver, bladder, and other types of cancer as a result of ranitidine contamination with a chemical known as N-nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA. While Zantac may cause other side effects, those are not part of these lawsuit claims. Consumers also accuse ranitidine manufacturers, sellers, and distributors of knowing that the medications exposed users to NDMA and hiding these dangers from the public.
