On September 13, 2019 the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning that the heartburn medicine Zantac® (Ranitidine) contains the cancer-causing chemical Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). The FDA issued a warning after a pharmacy in Connecticut discovered elevated levels of NDMA while testing Zantac®. It has been reported that the levels of cancer-causing NDMA are anywhere from 3,000 to 26,000 times higher than the legally allowable limit set by the FDA. Zantac® and its generic versions were pulled from shelves of Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens stores after the FDA announced that it had detected the cancer-causing chemical in samples of the drug.
Based upon testing by a popular independent laboratory and a petition filed with the FDA, there are medical claims that Zantac® causes high levels of NDMA exposure in users. Recent studies have confirmed that the unstable particles of the medication break down in the digestive tract to create harmful levels of NDMA. Based on these claims, significant NDMA exposure could result from taking brand name or generic Zantac® products, regardless of the manufacturer.
Similar types of NDMA exposure have been linked to various cancers, including:
On April 1, 2020, The FDA issued an order to have Zantac® products and generics to be immediately pulled from stores across the nation. In an ongoing investigation, the FDA determined that levels of Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in the heartburn medications increase over time especially when stored at higher-than-normal temperatures, pose a risk to public health.
According to the FDA’s announcement, all manufacturers of Zantac® are receiving letters requesting that they withdraw products from the market immediately. Consumers have been advised to stop taking any Zantac® medication they currently have. The FDA said to dispose of the drug properly and to not buy more.
