TOXIC BABY FORMULA & LAWSUIT
Some brands of cow milk-based baby formula can cause infants to develop NEC, a potentially deadly digestive condition
Cow based infant baba formula linked to NEC
Premature babies often need extra nutrition to support their undeveloped bodies and offset their initial low birth weight. Many doctors will recommend using bovine based baby formula to the parents, but recent evidence suggests that some brands of cow milk-based baby formula can cause infants to develop necrotizing enterocolitis, a potentially deadly digestive condition. To make matters worse, some of the manufacturers of their cow milk-based baby formula, Abbott Laboratories, and Mead Johnson & Company, never added a warning label on their toxic baby formula products that contained cow milk, causing more unsuspecting parents to put their children at risk.
Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their products prior to sale. As a result of their negligence, and failure to warn about their cow milk-based baby formulas, families all over have had to deal with losing their children to what they thought was a safe product.

FAQs About Toxic Baby Formula
Is There a Lawsuit Against Bovine Based Baby Formula Products? According to the toxic baby formula lawsuits, the manufacturers of these bad baby formula products failed to warn parents of the associated health risks of their bovine based bady formula, which has caused unsuspecting parents to give it to their prematurely born children.
What Is Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)? Necrotizing enterocolitis is a digestive disease that occurs primarily in premature infants and can cause inflammation of the intestinal lining, which can eventually lead to serious infections. In such cases, the inflamed intestinal wall is eventually eroded away, which allows bacteria to enter the intestinal tract and jeopardize the health of the infant. The medical professional in charge of your infant’s care should monitor for the following symptoms:
Swollen, red, or tender stomach
Fluctuations in temperature
Low blood pressure
Most infants survive the disease with serious, long-term injuries, but in more severe cases infants may lose their life. No one should have to fear for the safety of their child because of an unsafe toxic baby formula product, and together, we can hold the negligent manufacturers accountable for their injustice.

This disease 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. To make matters worse, the manufacturers failed to list the risks associated with their bovine based baby formula which has prompted parents to file lawsuits to stop their unethical behavior.

Does Cow Milk Based Formulas Such as Enfamil Baby Formulas Cause NEC? Scientific data indicates that infants given cow milk-based baby formula, such as Enfamil baby formulas, are more likely to develop NEC than infants fed other non bovine based baby formula products. One study found that prematurely born infants who consumed bovine based baby formula were six to ten times more likely to develop NEC, which is alarming considering that doctors and medical professionals recommended the formula as a safe alternative to breast milk. The data linking the risk of cow milk-based baby formula and NEC has been around for a little less than a decade, yet the manufacturer of Enfamil still failed to list the risk of digestive disease as a side effect of their product.
In stressing the importance of avoiding cow milk-based baby formula such as Siminal baby formulas and Enfamil baby formulas in favor of mothers own milk, the NEC Society states that "[f]or premature and medically fragile babies, breast milk can be a lifesaving intervention." Unlike cow milk-based baby formula, "]m]other’s breast milk has a multitude of nutritional and immune properties that protect against many devastating infections, including necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC)" explains the NEC Society.. Another important benefit of mothers own milk, is that is contains less saturated fat than bovine based baby formula such as some Enfamil baby formulas. The higher level of unsaturated fatty acids in human milkreflects the important role of these fats in brain development,
The links between bovine based baby formula and NEC in premature infants is well-established. In 2019, an independent health care research group naned Cochrane made public the results of the most extensive study to date comparing health results suffered by premature babies fed with bovine formula versus human milk. The results of the Cochrane study ended the debate about the existence of a causal relationship between cow milk-based formula and NEC in premature infants.
For over thirty (30) years the manufacturers of baby formula have known or should have known, that their cow milk-based baby formula products could cause necrotizing enterocolitis. Unfortunately, they have failed to warn doctors and the public of the potentially deadly risks associated with their baby formula(s). From 1990 to the presnt there have been numerous studies and well-documented publications concluding thatfeeding premature babies cow milk-based baby formula is associated with higher rates of NEC. Has Enfamil Been Recalled? Unfortunately, the FDA has yet to recall Enfamil baby formulas from store shelves despite the risk it poses to developing infants. Instead, the formula can still be purchased across the country, allowing innocent parents to unknowingly feed a bad formula product to their children.
