As the national media has reported, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of the popular heartburn medication known as Zantac, otherwise known as Ranitidine. The FDA has recalled the pharmaceutical due to its connection with the toxic chemical NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine), a known carcinogen which causes numerous forms of cancers in the organs of the human body. Due to this unprecedented recall, the experienced attorneys with The Advocates have begun representing victims who are suffering health complications due to the prolonged use of Zantac and its generic brands. The Advocates are determined to hold the reckless drug companies accountable for putting profits before the health of their consumers by allegedly concealing the links to cancer in their products.
The simple fact is that Sanofi, the manufacturer of Zantac, along with the manufacturers of the various generic brands are legally required to fully test the pharmaceuticals they produce before introducing them into the market. By using a chemical as dangerous as Raintidine, they have failed to protect those who use their product in good faith and, as such, they should now be held accountable according to federal law. If you have been diagnosed with a type of cancer after using Zantac or a generic brand containing Ranitdine, then you might be eligible to receive compensation for the damages you and your family have suffered. Our attorneys are currently reviewing Zantac injury claims so if you believe you or a family member may qualify, contact The Advocates today for a free legal consultation about your case.

What is Zantac?
Zantac is a pharmaceutical commonly used as a remedy for heartburn, acid reflux, and many other stomach and gastrointestinal difficulties. Zantac is the marketing brand name for the chemical Ranitidine hydrochloride and is part of a group of histamine pharmaceuticals which help suppress high levels of acid in the stomach. The drug was first released in the 1980’s and quickly skyrocketed to being one of the most popular pharmaceuticals in the world, becoming the first to top a billion dollars in global sales.
Most people typically use Zantac to treat a host of medical issues such as heartburn, gastric issues, gastroesophaegeal reflux disease (GERD), ulcer treatment, acid reflux, and many other problems. Zantac and Ranitidine usually comes in doses of 75-300 mg in a variety of forms: pills, syrups, or inhalants.
Unfortunately, it is now being alleged that Sanofi and a number of other major pharmaceutical companies and distributors knowingly concealed Zantac’s cancer link from their consumers and the public. Such disturbing and dishonest behavior has caused untold damage to consumers and victims should be lawfully compensated for their losses. The attorneys with The Advocates are committed to helping their clients win maximum compensation for the damages they have suffered. Don’t settle for second best. You deserve an Advocate!
