FDA Recalls Popular Antacid Drug ZANTAC™ (Ranitidine)
The attorneys at Flint Law Firm, LLC wanted to share an urgent update from April 2, 2020. The FDA has officially requested the removal of all Ranitidine products (brand name ZANTAC™) from the US market.
Zantac™ is an antacid used by millions of Americans to lower stomach acid production, treating common conditions like, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and peptic ulcer disease. It has been available since the 1980s as a prescription medication and since 2004 as an over-the-counter (OTC) medicine.
If you have taken Zantac™ in the past 20 years and have developed bladder, liver, or kidney cancer in the past 5 years please give us a call to see if we can help you obtain compensation from the manufacturer. In fact, if you or a loved one has developed a cancer in the past 5 years and took antacids you should give us a call. Our consultation is free and does not require you to leave your home.
If you are currently taking Zantac™ you should discontinue it immediately pursuant to the FDA notice. Contact your physician by phone to see what other treatment options are available. Please do not throw away your Zantac™ pills as they are proof of usage for your potential claim. Also please don’t flush pill in the toilet as the cancer, causing contaminant in Zantac™ can enter the water supply.
