What is the problem with using Zantac?
In the consolidated Multi-district Litigation, in front of Judge Robin L. Rosenberg, the Plaintiffs have alleged that the chemical ingredients found in Zantac/Ranitidine will break down under certain conditions resulting in a cancer-causing compound called NDMA.
Was Zantac Recalled?
While Defendants promoted Zantac and its generic forms as being safe and effective for many decades, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ultimately ordered nationwide recalls, removing all ranitidine-containing products from the shelves, followed by a recommendation that all such products be discarded by consumers.

Is my personal injury claim part of a class action lawsuit?
No. The pending litigation is considered a mass action suit, where the judge is deciding preliminary matters for all parties. A multi-district litigation, or MDL, is not a class action, but it does share some similar attributes. In a class action suit, a single person acts as a class representative for all the members of the “class” and any result or judgment would apply to the entire class. Personal injury actions are almost never considered appropriate for class actions.
Will my case and my damages be considered on their merits?
Although the MDL judge will decide common questions relating to pre-trial issues for ALL claimants, any ultimate result will take the individual factors for each client into consideration in calculating damages.
How long will the process take?
At present the case is in its early stages. We update clients regularly with new developments. We are committed to doing the best we can by our clients and getting them compensation if and when the courts deem their claim meritorious.
Do I need to be a Florida resident to be represented by Pennekamp Law?
No, you do not have to live in Florida to be represented by Pennekamp Law. Zantac/Ranitidine litigation has been consolidated in several jurisdictions around the country. Federal litigation has been consolidated in Miami in the federal court for the southern district of Florida, and we represent clients from around the country.
