The Zantac Breakdown
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) alerted patients and health care professionals of multiple recalls of ranitidine in September of 2019. Sanofi, a pharmaceutical company and creator of Zantac, announced a voluntary recall due to its concerns of a potential cancer-causing chemical known as N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).
NDMA was once used in the production of rocket fuel. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified NDMA as a B2 (probable human) Carcinogen. It is also known as a potent hepatotoxin which can cause liver damage. According to recent testing done by the FDA on ranitidine samples from various drug manufacturers, more than half of the 18 samples tested contained unacceptably high levels of NDMA (more than 0.32 parts per million (ppm) of NDMA).
