Baby Formula Enfamil Lawsuit
Over the last few decades, doctors have recommended that prematurely born babies be given baby formula to support their growth and development, but a recent scientific study has uncovered evidence that some baby formula products aren’t as healthy as we previously thought. According to the study, cow-milk-based formula products cause an increased risk of digestive disease, mainly necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Enfamil and Similac, two popular brands of baby formula, are at the forefront of the problem, as their products were highlighted in the study due to the risk they pose to developing babies. To make matters worse, Enfamil and Similac have yet to include the risk of digestive disease on their warning label, causing innocent parents to unknowingly feed a toxic product to their children.
No one should unknowingly endanger their wellbeing from a product they found on store shelves, especially when that product is marketed as a healthy alternative to breastfeeding for newborn children. All manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their products prior to sale, and if they fail to do so, it’s an actionable offense. If your child developed health concerns as a result of their baby formula, our attorneys understand your frustration and want to help. Together, we can hold these negligent manufacturers accountable for their injustice and set an example for others to follow in the future.

Is There a Baby Formula Lawsuit?
Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of Enfamil and Similac due to their failure to honestly disclose the side effects of their product. Their negligence has already caused serious damage, but the hope of the lawsuit is to remove the products from the market and prevent other families from losing the ones they love the most. If you have any of the following products in your home, it’s best to find a safer alternative that doesn’t jeopardize the wellbeing of your child:
- Similac Special Care 20
- Similac NeoSure
- Similac Special Care 24
- Similac Special Care 30
- Similac Special Care 24 - High Protein
- Similac Liquid Protein Fortifier
- Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier
- Enfamil NeuroPro EnfaCare
- Enfamil 24 Cal
How Dangerous Is Enfamil?
A recent scientific study found that prematurely born children who ingested cow-milk based Enfamil or Similac products were much more likely to develop necrotizing enterocolitis compared to other baby formula products. Necrotizing enterocolitis, a potentially life-threatening digestive condition that primarily affects newborns, causes immense intestinal damage that can lead to infections such as sepsis. Infants who suffer from serious cases of NEC often require surgery to repair and remove the damaged intestinal tissue, but in most cases, the child will go on to live a normal life.
However, there is always a risk that NEC can be fatal. Prematurely born children don’t have rugged immune systems to fight off infections or harmful bacteria, and if they’re suffering from a serious case, they could lose their lives. Some parents have already had to endure losing their children, yet the manufacturers have yet to include the risk of NEC on the warning label of their product. Their negligence is unacceptable considering the risk their product poses to innocent children, but we can make the change that will protect families across the country by working together and bringing the at-fault organizations to justice.
