Baby Formula Lawsuit
A recent scientific study discovered a link between their cow-milk baby formulas and a digestive disease, necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Many parents are now suing Abbott Laboratories, the maker of Similac, and Mead Johnson and Company, the company behind Enfamil.
Which Baby Formulas Are Affected?
Here is the list of probably toxic baby formuals:
- 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
Symptoms of Necrotizing Enterocolitis
NEC is potentially life-threatening for prematurely born children, and even minor cases can result in long-term damage that may cause digestive problems in the future. Here’s a list of symptoms that may result from ingesting these toxic baby formulas:
- Swollen, red, or tender stomach
- Abdominal pressure
- Fluctuations in temperature
- Abnormal breathing
- Low blood pressure
Some infants may get over these symptoms, but other cases can lead to death.
