Baby Formula Lawsuit Attorneys

Preterm infants face an increased risk for health problems when compared to non-preterm infants. Parents and physicians sometimes use alternative nutrition sources, such as cow milk-based formulas, in hopes preterm babies get the nutrients they need.

Unfortunately, these formulas have been linked with serious complications, endangering the health of children who are already at risk. Formulas such as Enfamil and Similac, among many other variations of cow milk-based formulas, are the subject of a growing number of lawsuits in the U.S.

If you or a loved one has had a preterm baby fed on cow-milk based formulas and who has been diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), an extremely dangerous neonatal digestive disease, we want to help you. If your baby was born after 1991 and was fed Enfamil, Similac, or another cow milk-based formula in the NICU, contact us now.

Our team is currently accepting inquiries about these cases, and is ready to fight on behalf of the families harmed. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation regarding your child.

Consequences of Dangerous Formula on Preterm Babies

The biggest health risk facing preterm infants fed on cow milk-based formulas is necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), which causes the death of tissue in the intestine. NEC, along with other gastrointestinal issues, can cause serious, life-threatening health complications in newborns.

Up to four out of every 10 babies with NEC die from this condition. And it’s now clear that cow milk-based formulas have a strong link to the development of NEC. Studies indicate that infants fed formulas with cow’s milk-derived fortifiers face a four-fold increase of NEC and a five-fold increase of NEC surgery and death.

Common symptoms of NEC include:

  • Vomiting
  • Bloating in the abdomen
  • Diarrhea
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Bloody stool
  • Unstable body temperature, breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure
  • Lethargy

Products That Pose Serious Risks to Infants

Many variations of cow milk-based baby formulas could cause health complications in preterm infants. In addition to Enfamil and Similac, some of the most common products linked to this condition include:

  • Earth’s Best
  • Happy Baby
  • Go & Grow
  • Gerber
  • Parent’s Choice
  • Baby’s Only
  • Loulouka
  • Holle
  • Kendamil
  • Bobbie
  • Lebenswert

These formulas were intended to mimic human breast milk, and they’re often fortified with several additional nutrients and ingredients. However, the risks of these formulas typically outweigh the benefits, with potentially deadly consequences.

Parents who are now struggling the severe illness or death of a child should know that they have legal options available to hold these dangerous baby formula manufacturers responsible for selling these products without properly warning doctors or consumers about their risks.
