Was your Child diagnosed with NEC (Necrotizing Enterocolitis)?
Cow’s milk based infant formula and fortifiers have been associated with a premature baby’s risk of developing the life threatening condition of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). Manufacturing Giants Abbot and Mead Johnson have failed to warn the public of these dangers. Protect your rights and seek compensation for your baby’s death or lifelong suffering. Even though this may have happened years ago, you still may be eligible for compensation.
Premature babies often need extra care and nutrition to support their developing bodies and offset their low birth weight. Formula brands such a Similac and Enfamil market their products as a nutritionally complete human milk alternatives to help babies gain weight.
However, evidence has suggested that Similac and Enfamil can cause premature infants to develop necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). A study by Lancet in 1990 showed that babies given formula were 10 times more likely to develop NEC. Despite multiple scientific studies showing this alarming information, the manufacturers of Similac and Enfamil failed to warn parents about these side effects.
NEC is a serious gastrointestinal disease that can cause intestinal tissue to die or a hole (perforation) in the intestine. Bacteria can leak through this hole, causing serious abdominal infections. This serious gastrointestinal illness can result in lifelong complications and even death.
Symptoms of NEC include:
- Loss of appetite
- Abdominal pain
- Abdominal swelling
- Abnormal breathing
- Change in heart rate or blood pressure
- Lack of weight gain
