Zantac, also known by its generic name, ranitidine, is a prescription and over-the-counter heartburn and ulcer medication used by millions of Americans. Zantac has recently been pulled from store shelves by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to concerns over its harmful effects on human health. It has been revealed that Zantac contains a contaminant knows as NDMA, which has been identified by the FDA and the World Health Organization as a probable human carcinogen linked to diseases such as liver and stomach cancer. Further research into this toxic substance is beginning to establish connections to many other types of cancer as well. Although the manufacturers of Zantac such as Sanofi were aware of this fact, they chose not to disclose the information to their customers.
Due to these overwhelming health concerns the FDA recalled Zantac from the consumer market on April 1, 2020, along with all other ranitidine products. The immediate FDA recall applies to both prescription and over-the-counter Zantac medications.
