Zantac Cancer Risk and Potential Recall for NDMA

Riddle Brantley LLP   |  October 1, 2019   |  

Does Zantac cause cancer?

With evidence indicating a possible cancer risk, Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid have stopped selling Zantac and ranitidine, a generic version of the popular heartburn medication.

Many people are asking “I heard the Zantac I’ve been taking could cause Cancer. Is that true?”

According to a review by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Zantac may contain NDMA, a dangerous substance that may cause cancer.

In a statement, the FDA said that some ranitidine medications, including Zantac, contain low levels of ranitidine.

“NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer) based on results from laboratory tests.” -Food & Drug Administration (FDA)

Zantac is manufactured by Apotex Corp. and is one of the most common medication for preventing and treating heartburn.

Possible Zantac Recall?

Does Zantac Cancer RisksZantac has not yet been recalled by the manufacturer, and the FDA has not recommended that patients stop taking the heartburn medication.

However, concerned patients may return Zantac and generic equivalents for a full refund, at least at CVS.

Beyond Zantac, a voluntary recall has been issued by Sandoz, a manufacturer that makes ranitidine hydrochloride capsules. The drug maker issued the recall after contamination by the potentially cancer-causing substance was confirmed.
