Zantac is manufactured by Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim, two of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, and it’s used by millions and millions of people to help mitigate acid reflux or heartburn. Now there are class action lawsuits against both companies because a carcinogenic compound has been found in the Zantac formulation. The levels of this compound in Zantac are said to be “low” but are still thousands of times the established safe levels. And the compound was already known to be linked to cancer and to cause tumors to develop in the kidneys and liver. The Environmental Protection Agency classified this chemical as a “potent carcinogen.” It’s found in Zantac at 30,000 times the safe level established by the FDA.
Class-action lawsuits have been filed across the country in response to this revelation. The first was filed in California, and suits have also been filed in Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Florida. There are also nationwide class-action lawsuits being pursued from New Jersey and Connecticut. Many stores have removed Zantac from their shelves, including Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid.
