Parents Suing Makers of Baby Formula Brands Enfamil and Similac
Parents of premature babies have many concerns when their infants are in the NICU. One of these concerns may be their child’s ability to gain weight. To help preemies grow, they are often fed cow-based formula by popular brands Enfamil and Similac. However, these baby formulas have been associated with a dangerous condition called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). NEC is a condition characterized by inflammation of the baby’s colon which may lead to perforations in the organ or intestines. Infection may occur, which can be detrimental to the newborn, and may even cause death.
Lawsuits have been filed against makers of these formula brands, including Abbott and Mead Johnson, claiming the companies failed to disclose the risks of NEC associated with the formulas.
