What are cow’s milk-based baby formulas & NEC?
Cow’s milk-based baby formulas such as Similac have been designed to replicate breast milk and its nutrients. However, these formulas have been linked to an increased risk of NEC, and other complications, in premature babies.
Largely affecting premature babies, NEC (necrotizing enterocolitis) is a gastrointestinal condition where the internal tissue dies, which can lead to serious, long term medical complications, injury, infections, and in extreme cases, death.
Justpoint is here to support you every step of the way.
There is a lawsuit against cow’s milk-based formulas such as Similac alleging:
They have been linked to an increased risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in premature babies.
Many brands were marketed as safe for babies born prematurely and recommended for use in hospitals and neonatal intensive care units.
Some formula manufacturers such as Abbott Laboratories failed to adequately warn parents and medical professionals about the severity of risks associated with cow’s milk-based formulas, using false and misleading information in their marketing campaigns.
Many victims feel that manufacturers prioritized monetary gain and profit over their users’ health.
Who is eligible?
You may qualify to join the lawsuit if your child:
Consumed a cow’s milk-based infant formula such as Similac.
Was diagnosed with NEC or suffered other complications after having that formula
