Why are Zantac Cancer Lawsuits being filed?

Since Zantac has been shown to have links to cause cancer, the FDA put a statement out in April 2020 that stated manufacturers must withdraw Zantac and all other prescriptions from the market immediately. This also included any over the counter prescriptions. It had been discovered by the FDA that the dangers of Zantac could increase in a patient over time. Since NDMA is found in Zantac, this puts those who took it at a high risk for developing cancer. Since 2019, there had been warnings put out regarding Zantac by the FDA.
