Toxic baby formula has been connected to several health problems in premature infants. Babies born prematurely have an increased risk of gastrointestinal diseases, so being exposed to chemicals such as bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates can increase their risk of a serious condition known as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), which can be severe and lead to death. Several popular baby formulas come in packaging that contains these chemicals, which can then leech into the formula itself, resulting in harm to the infants who consume it. Manufacturers did not inform consumers of the presence of this risk, despite being aware of it since at least 1991. If you believe your child was harmed by toxic baby formula, contact us today to talk about your claim.

Enfamil and Similac Formula Recall

  • February 2022
Upon discovering a potential connection between the consumption of specific baby formula brands, including Enfamil® and Similac®, and the occurrence of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) in infants, measures were implemented to remove these products from retail shelves. This likely involved an extensive investigation to ascertain the precise cause of the association between the formula and NEC, as well as identifying other potentially affected products. In addition to product removal, there may have been public announcements through various media channels to alert consumers about the potential risks associated with the formula. Furthermore, efforts may have been made to inform hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities that might have been providing the formula to patients. Such actions are typically taken to prevent further harm to consumers and to mitigate potential legal or financial repercussions arising from a product being deemed unsafe or harmful. Ultimately, prioritizing consumer safety is paramount, and any measures taken to ensure this are crucial.

FDA Inquiry into Baby Formula

  • June 2022
The FDA received reports indicating a possible connection between an infant's death and suspected bacterial contamination originating from baby formula. This triggered an inquiry to identify the source of contamination and assess the potential risk to other infants. The investigation likely involved sampling and testing various types and batches of baby formula to detect any harmful bacterial contamination. If the contamination was found to be widespread, it could have led to a recall of affected products to prevent further harm to infants. Additionally, the investigation may have included a scrutiny of the manufacturing process for baby formula and other relevant factors contributing to the contamination. Overall, the FDA treats reports of adverse events related to food and drug products seriously, conducting comprehensive investigations to ensure consumer safety.

Updates on Trials Related to Baby Formula

  • October 2022
Presently, there are 66 cases associated with the NEC lawsuit awaiting resolution. These cases involve infants who experienced NEC after being fed harmful baby formula. However, it is suspected that there could be numerous other individuals affected by this toxic formula who may not have initiated a lawsuit, or their cases may still be under investigation. The complete extent of the impact of this toxic formula may not be fully understood at this moment.

Recent Updates in the Toxic Baby Formula Lawsuit

Abbott Laboratories, the maker of Similac formula, initiated a recall of specific batches of their baby formula upon detecting evidence of Cronobacter sakazakii, a bacterium capable of causing severe illness, in the product. The recall likely involved an extensive process to pinpoint the affected lots of formula, remove them from store shelves, and notify consumers about the potential hazards associated with the formula. Consumers who had purchased the affected products were probably advised to cease using them immediately and return them to the store for a refund or exchange. In addition to the recall, there were reports of numerous premature infants contracting necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) after consuming formula as a dietary supplement. This raised concerns about the safety of baby formula and prompted calls for increased transparency and accountability from manufacturers. Many consumers were unaware of the risks associated with feeding premature infants with formula and were not informed about the potential dangers of specific brands or types of formula. The identification of bacteria in the formula and the subsequent recall underscored the necessity for enhanced oversight and regulation in the manufacturing and distribution of baby formula to safeguard the safety and well-being of infants.

What makes the baby formula compensation relevant to you?

The link between certain types of formula and premature infants developing necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a serious gastrointestinal illness that is more common in premature babies, has led to concerns about the safety of formula feeding. Although the exact cause of NEC is not currently known, researchers have identified several factors that increase the risk. One of those factors was the use of infant formulas. This draws the safety of certain baby formulas into question, and several lawsuits have been filed against makers of popular formulas for failing to disclose the potential presence of harmful chemicals to parents. If your child has been harmed by baby formula, it is essential that you explore legal remedies as soon as possible so that you can seek compensation for any injury or harm that has resulted. Attorneys experienced in this particular type of case can help you navigate the complexities of the legal system and protect your child’s legal rights.
