Zantac’s Original Maker Halts Shipping on Carcinogen Concern
Have you used Zantac and recently been diagnosed with cancer of the digestive system? You can contact our firm and ask questions about this very new medical development and learn about your potential rights. The online Valisure Pharmacy published a major report on the digestive cancers associated with Zantac and oncologist Dr. Lior Braunstein studies Zantac use and cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
The common over-the-counter drug known as Zantac has been recalled by Novartis, Dr. Reddy, and other companies. The leading cause of the recall was the carcinogen N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) being found within the drug. In recent litigation involving the recall of blood pressure medications, which has the same impurity as Zantac, it has been discovered that this carcinogen is known as NDMA had led to cancer of the digestive tract.
