If your premature baby developed necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) after being fed cow’s milk-based Similac or Enfamil products, you may be able to take legal action.
Lawsuits are now being filed that claim two makers of baby formula products, Mead Johnson and Abbott Laboratories, knew and failed to warn hospitals, doctors and caregivers that their cow’s milk-based infant formulas can significantly increase the risk that premature babies will develop potentially fatal NEC.
In fact, it’s been alleged that the companies ignored well-established scientific evidence that cow’s milk-based formulas are linked to NEC and went so far as to market their Similac and Enfamil baby formula products as superior to safer alternatives such as breast milk.
