toxic baby formula linked to nec
several brands of formula found to be toxic
thousands of claimants affected
Studies were conducted on certain brands of baby formula and it was found that they were toxic to premature babies, leading to the development of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and other complications. Brands of baby formula that were tested and found to be toxic included Enfamil® or Similac®. They failed to disclose to consumers that the formula was not safe for premature infants.
It was found that premature babies that were born between 1991 and present were affected if they were fed the formula. Conditions linked to NEC include infection, inflammation, and in some cases death.
