Premature babies often need extra nutrition to support their undeveloped bodies and offset their initial low birth weight. Many doctors will recommend using cow milk-based infant formula to the parents, but recent evidence suggests that some brands of bovine infant formula can cause infants to develop necrotizing enterocolitis, a potentially deadly digestive condition.
To make matters worse, some of the manufacturers cow milk-based infant formula, Abbott Laboratories, and Mead Johnson & Company, never added a warning label on their cow milk-based infant formula products that contained cow milk, causing more unsuspecting parents to put their children at risk.
Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company, both who sell cow milk-based infant formula products, 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 unsafe infant formula products, families all over have had to deal with losing their children to what they thought was a safe product.

NEC primarily affects prematurely born infants, children born under 3.25 pounds, and newborns who are fed formula in their early life.
