Call toxic infant formula lawyer Timothy L. Miles About the Toxic Infant Formula Lawsuits
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.

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
• Abdominal pressure
• Fluctuations in temperature
• Abnormal breathing
• 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 infant formula product, and together, we can hold them accountability.
Who Is at Risk for NEC?
NEC primarily affects prematurely born infants, children born under 3.25 pounds, and newborns who are fed formula in their early life. The condition only occurs in every 2,000-3,000 births, but it is especially dangerous to infants, as their immune systems have not developed enough to fight off harmful bacteria.
Do I Qualify for the Toxic Infant Formula Lawsuits?
If your newborn child was fed toxic baby formula in the hospital, or the hospital gave you an unsafe infant formula product to take home, and your child was diagnosed with digestive health issues, you could be eligible to join the toxic infant formula lawsuits. However, your eligibility will depend on the circumstances surrounding your case, but our toxic infant formula lawyer can review your situation and determine whether you qualify when you contact a Toxic Infant Formula Lawyer.
