Helping Families Seek Justice & Compensation
Zantac (or Ranitidine), a well-known heartburn medication, has been recalled due to its links to causing cancer in humans. If you or a loved one has been a regular user of Zantac or other Ranitidine products, call Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana now. You may have a claim to pursue.
Zantac (or Ranitidine), when purchased over the counter, is used to treat heartburn related to acid indigestion and sour stomach. Prescription Ranitidine is used to treat and prevent stomach and intestinal ulcers and in the treatment of diseases such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and gastroesophageal reflux.
Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) called for the withdrawal of all Ranitidine (Zantac) products on the grounds that they contained high levels of NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine). NDMA is a probable human carcinogen, and is found in foods such as meats, dairy, vegetable, and water. Based on lifetime exposure, ingesting up to 96 nanograms of NDMA per day is considered reasonably safe, however levels of NDMA found in Zantac and other Ranitidine products were found to be at three million nanograms per tablet.
Sustained higher levels of exposure to NDMA can increase cancer risks in humans, including, lung, liver, stomach, small intestine, bladder, kidney, colorectal, esophageal, prostate, pancreatic, thyroid, uterine, leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. Recent studies have shown that Zantac contains up to 26,000 times the amount of NDMA that the FDA considers reasonably safe. As a result, if you or a family member consumed Zantac or other products containing Ranitidine over long periods of time (three months or longer) and have now developed cancer, the attorneys at Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana want to speak with you.
Dealing with Zantac related cancer not only takes a heavy toll on your body, but the costs associated with cancer treatments can be crushing. This financial devastation is made worse when you or the people caring for you can no longer work for weeks, months or years.
However, obtaining compensation for such expenses is no easy task. The manufacturers and distributors of Zantac and other products containing Ranitidine will be reluctant to pay any money to victims. Hiring a lawyer will maximize your chances of making a recovery. We at Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana want to help you, so call us at 251-444-7000 to fight for the compensation you and your family deserves!
