Are You At Risk?

Baby Formula Lawsuits

NEC lawsuits have been initiated against two major baby formula manufacturers in the United States – Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company. If your premature or preterm infant experienced necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) after being fed Similac or Enfamil cow’s milk-based formulas, you may be entitled to pursue legal action by filing an NEC lawsuit.
Background.

What is NEC?

This rare intestinal condition occurs when the tissue in the small or large intestine becomes damaged or inflamed, leading to the death of intestinal tissue and, in certain instances, the formation of a hole in the intestinal wall. Most common in babies, indicators of NEC include: swollen or tender belly, discoloration of the belly, feeding difficulties, apnea, diarrhea, dark or bloody stools, lethargy or reduced activity, low or unstable body temperature or green vomit. Premature babies fed certain Similac and Enfamil formulas may be exposed to the increased potential risk of developing necrotizing enterocolitis.
Not a New Issue

Higher risk cow milk formulas

Some of the research into the stronger connection between cow’s milk-based formulas, premature babies and necrotizing enterocolitis goes back decades. However, if your child was born prematurely, he or she may have been given such a product in the NICU, despite the correlation. Studies have shown that while cow’s milk-based preterm formulas provide consistent calories and are less expensive than human milk-based products, cow’s milk-based products significantly increase the risk of NEC in infants. If your premature or preterm infant experienced NEC after being fed Similac or Enfamil cow’s milk-based formulas, you may be entitled to compensation.
