Baby Formula NEC Lawsuit

Doctors have always recommended that prematurely born children should be fed baby formula to offset their initial low birth weight and help their early development, but recent evidence suggests that this approach might not be as safe as previously thought. According to a scientific study, some cow-milk-based baby formula products, mainly Enfamil and Similac, cause an increased risk of dangerous digestive diseases. One of the main concerns, necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), is potentially life-threatening for newborn children, which has many parents questioning why the product was on store shelves in the first place.

When manufacturers fail to abide by the proper safety standards, they expose their customer base to a risk of harm, which is especially unacceptable when the product is designed as a health alternative for newborns. Unfortunately, some parents have already had to endure losing their child to digestive disease as a result of this toxic product, but there’s hope for the future. By working together, we can hold the negligent manufacturers accountable for their injustice and set an example for others to follow. 

If a toxic baby formula product harmed your child, contact us today for more information about how to fight back.

What Is NEC?

Necrotizing enterocolitis is a digestive disease that primarily affects newborn children. Once the bacteria enters the body, it erodes the intestinal lining until holes form and causes a risk of infection. Although most of the symptoms of NEC are internal, you should make sure that the medical professional in charge of your child’s care is monitoring for:

  • Swollen, red, or tender stomach area
  • Abdominal pressure/pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Low blood pressure
  • Abnormal breathing patterns
  • Rapid or unusual changes in temperature

Serious cases of NEC are potentially life-threatening, but most infants survive the disease and grow up to live normal lives. However, some infants who survived NEC will have future digestive health problems that can be traced back to the disease they suffered from as a baby, which is unfair when they didn’t choose to consume the toxic product themselves.

No one should have to lose their child because of someone else’s negligence. The manufacturers of Enfamil and Similac failed to adhere to the proper safety standards prior to the sale of their product and left their victims to pick up the pieces. Their actions aren’t just unethical, they’re illegal, and you could be entitled to compensation for the hardship you’ve endured. Although legal action won’t reverse the damage, it can help you financially recover from the event and help deter other manufacturers from making the same mistake in the future.

If your child developed health concerns as a result of their baby formula, complete a free, no-risk case evaluation to take the first steps toward justice.

    • Similac Special Care 20
    • Similac NeoSure
    • Similac Special Care 24
    • Similac Special Care 30
