Corporate irresponsibility, malfeasance, and manufacturing shortcuts make bringing a baby into this world a time to be well-informed and ever-vigilant.

Manufactured by global conglomerates and sold in national retail outlets, infant formulas should be among the very safest food products available. In many but not all cases, they are indeed held to a higher standard.

Yet recent research has reinforced the fact that infant formulas based on cow’s milk, including Enfamil and Similac, may be linked to a debilitating condition known as necrotizing enterocolitis, or NEC, in babies born prematurely.

Even on infant formulas explicitly designed for premature infants, no mention is made of this possible danger, exposing newborns to potentially contracting the disease. Suppose you or a loved one may have been affected by these infant formulas. In that case, you have legal recourse available to you, and the vigilant and experienced attorneys at Meyers & Flowers will fight on your behalf for fair and full restitution. 

    What Is Necrotizing Enterocolitis?

    NEC, or necrotizing enterocolitis, is a potentially fatal disease of bacterial infection that causes intestinal inflammation in infants. In as many as 50 percent of cases, NEC can be fatal, while in others, it can lead to cerebral palsy, intestinal excision, total blindness in both eyes, and brain injury. NEC affects between five and 12 percent of deficient birthweight babies and is evidently exacerbated by infant formulas containing cow’s milk protein.

    Infant Formula Linked to Life-Threatening Condition for Premature Babies 

    What Infant Formulas Use Cow Milk?

    An estimated 80 percent of available infant formulas on the market use cow’s milk as a protein base. This includes virtually all infant formula brands sold at national retailers, including the following:

    • Enfamil
    • Similac
    • Earth’s Best
    • Happy Baby
    • Parent’s Choice
    • And many more

    Legal Recourse For Users Of Affected Infant Formulas

    Manufacturers of infant formulas have known the potential for harm associated with cow’s milk infant formulas for well over a decade. Yet many have failed to alert consumers, parents, and pediatricians to the potentially life-threatening consequences of nourishing a premature infant with these formulas.

    The statute of limitations of when a parent’s right to legal recourse expires will vary from state to state. If you or a loved one has been affected by the negligence of infant formula manufacturers, please contact us immediately to discuss pursuing legal action.

    Our team of experienced product liability lawyers will fight to ensure full and fair compensation for all parties involved. Bringing a child into this world and raising them through childhood should be a lifelong moment of joy and excitement. Yet, this time, for many parents of premature infants, can be filled with undue heartache, pain, and even the loss of a precious newborn. Parents and young children whose lives have been irreparably impacted by the negligence of multinational corporations deserve the best we have to offer and should never have to suffer in vain.
