Zantac — a heartburn medication formerly considered safe enough to be sold over the counter — has tested positive for the probable cancer-causing chemical NDMA.
In 2019, Zantac was voluntarily recalled by its manufacturer and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched an additional investigation into the issue.
On April 1, 2020, the FDA confirmed that tests revealed NDMA levels in ranitidine drugs (Zantac) to be troublingly high and that they posed an unacceptable risk to patients. The FDA advised consumers taking ranitidine to immediately contact their healthcare providers and find an alternative medication.
Zantac and all other ranitidine drugs have been recalled by the FDA and are no longer available for purchase in the United States by prescription or over-the-counter.

The antacid drug ranitidine, commonly sold under the brand name Zantac, has been proven to contain harmful amounts of NDMA, a compound labeled as a probable carcinogen by the FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the World Health Organization (WHO).
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), NDMA has been linked to severe liver disease, liver cancer, and lung cancer.

Harvard Medical School reports that the FDA has determined:
“the impurity in some ranitidine products increases over time and when stored at higher than room temperatures. As a result of this recall, ranitidine products will no longer be available for prescription or OTC use in the US. The FDA is also advising consumers taking OTC ranitidine to stop taking this medication, including any unused ranitidine medication they may still have at home.”
