Toxic Baby Formula Lawyer
When a baby is born prematurely, they often require extra nutrients to support their underdeveloped bodies and offset their low birth weight. Many parents of premature infants are advised by their doctors to supplement this extra nutrition with baby formula. However, recent evidence suggests that various brands of baby formula can cause infants to develop necrotizing enterocolitis. Necrotizing Enterocolitis is a potentially deadly digestive condition. Additionally, some of the manufacturers of baby formula, like Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company, failed to add a warning label to their products resulting in unsuspecting parents putting their children at risk.
Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe before being sold to the public. Due to their negligence, families across the United States have had to mourn the loss of their children to what they thought was a safe product.

Have Toxic Baby Formula Lawsuits Been Filed Against Baby Formula Manufacturers?
Currently, there have been many lawsuits filed by parents after their children developed necrotizing enterocolitis as a result of ingesting Similac or Enfamil baby formula.
What Is Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)?
Necrotizing enterocolitis is a digestive disease that occurs most commonly in premature infants. This disease can cause inflammation of the intestinal lining, which may lead to severe infections. In serious cases, the intestinal wall will be eroded away, which allows bacteria to enter the digestive tract. This is highly dangerous and will jeopardize the health of the baby. The medical professional caring for your child should monitor these common symptoms:
- Swollen, red, or tender stomach
- Abdominal pressure
- Fluctuations in temperature
- Abnormal breathing
- Low blood pressure
Generally, most infants will survive this disease with long-term, serious injuries. However, in extreme cases, the infant may pass away.
What Baby Formula Products Can Cause NEC?
According to a scientific study, Similac and Enfamil baby formula products have been linked to NEC diagnoses in premature infants.
