Similac and Enfamil, two popular cow milk-based baby formulas, are currently facing thousands of lawsuits from parents whose premature babies developed necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). NEC is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that affects the gastrointestinal tract and can cause severe damage to the intestines.
The lawsuits claim that the manufacturers of these formulas knew or should have known about the risks of NEC associated with their products, but failed to adequately warn consumers or take steps to prevent the condition. Many of the parents who are suing say that their premature babies developed NEC after consuming Similac or Enfamil, and that they would not have used these formulas if they had been aware of the risks.
The manufacturers of Similac and Enfamil have denied any wrongdoing, but the lawsuits are ongoing. If your child suffered from NEC after consuming either of these infant formulas, it’s important to understand your legal rights and options. The personal injury law firm of Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC in Alabama can assist you in holding the manufacturers accountable.
