Zantac Recall Update
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that all consumers STOP taking Zantac and dispose of the medicine properly. Zantac (ranitidine) is a medicine that has been investigated over the past couple of months for contamination violations. Research has shown that some Zantac medicines contain the chemical NDMA, which is a known human carcinogen.
The FDA released the Zantac recall on April 1, 2020. This recall orders stores to remove all prescription and over-the-counter Zantac or ranitidine drugs immediately. The FDA found that the level of NDMA in Zantac increases over time, especially when stored at higher room temperatures. Zantac will not be available in any stores in the United States.
If you, or a loved one, have been taking Zantac and have been diagnosed with gastric cancer, esophageal cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, colorectal cancer or other gastrointestinal tract cancers, contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. immediately at 716-839-3939.

Zantac tests began when information from a third-party laboratory was publicized in September of 2019. Since then, the FDA’s tests and evaluations confirmed that NDMA levels rise in Zantac in normal storage conditions. Furthermore, the tests confirmed that NDMA increases significantly when Zantac is stored at higher temperatures. These temperatures can occur when the product is being shipped, distributed and handled by customers. Again, the FDA recommends that all users stop taking Zantac immediately.
If you take Zantac or ranitidine medicine:
- Stop taking the medicine.
- Contact your physician regarding alternate treatment options.
- Properly dispose of the medicine. The FDA recommends reading the Zantac label for the safest way to dispose of the medicine. However, if you think you may have an injury claim because of your use of Zantac, it is best to preserve the remaining product and packaging, as it may be important to your legal claim.
- Finally, call the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. at 716-839-3939 if you believe that your serious illness or cancer is linked to taking Zantac.
