Why Are Parents Filing Baby Formula Lawsuits?
Parents are filing lawsuits against Mead Johnson and Abbott Laboratories asserting that the two manufacturers knew or should have known that the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) found in Similac and Enfamil could cause necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), sepsis, failure to thrive, or other dangerous conditions to premature infants.
In court filings, Abbott Laborites and Mead Johnson, both based in Illinois, deny that the formulas cause NEC and other complications, and instead claim the gastrointestinal disease is “naturally occurring” and can develop in premature infants who are fed breast milk, however, research suggests otherwise. Legal counsel for these manufactures will argue that claims regarding premature infant formulas are not permitted by the Infant Formula Act, this is not a winning argument and has never worked in prior lawsuits.
NEC is a dangerous neonatal medical condition that causes the intestinal tissue to die, resulting in holes forming along the intestinal track. Bacteria can then escape through these whole, causing abdominal infections, sepsis, short bowel syndrome, and many other dangerously and even deadly conditions. Oftentimes, preemies that develop NEC are quickly switched to IV feeding or undergoes intestinal surgery to remove sections of the intestines that have been comprised. But contracting NEC often has long-term affects, such as malabsorption or failure to thrive that may continue to plague a child.
The lawsuits highlight the potential dangers of preemies consuming toxic baby formula, but the dangers of premature babies developing NEC from milk-based products was revealed by Lancet decades ago.
