Cow’s Milk in Baby Formula Causes NEC in Premature Babies

What Happened?

Parents of premature babies, who thought they were feeding their tiny ones a safe product, have found that some of the formulas with cows milk are causing a grave bacterial disease.

Who Are We After?

The products include established names in infant nutrition, such as Similac, produced by Abbott Laboratories, and Enfamil, manufactured by Mead Johnson.

Why Do We Fight?

NEC is the death of intestinal tissue, which often ruptures leading to life-threatening conditions. While NEC affects 1 in 1,000 premature babies, the mortality rate stands at a staggering 20% in infants who subsequently developed necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).

Recent studies have suggested a potential link between certain baby formulas and an increased risk of developing NEC, especially in premature infants. Our litigation specifically alleges that Similac, produced by Abbott Laboratories, and Enfamil, manufactured by Mead Johnson, caused or contributed to the development of NEC in infants. 
NEC (necrotizing enterocolitis) typically manifests in premature infants within the first few weeks of life. The symptoms can range from mild to severe, and it's essential for caregivers and medical professionals to be vigilant, as early detection and treatment are crucial. 
A lawsuit related to medical complications like NEC caused by baby formula such as Similac or Enfamil aims to provide families with compensation for the significant burdens they've faced and may continue to confront. One of the primary areas of compensation is medical expenses. Beyond immediate medical costs, there are ongoing care costs to consider.
