Filing a claim against a baby formula company can be stressful and full of uncertainty. We can help make it a successful endeavor.
The Link Between Baby Formula and NEC
There are many reasons why baby formula brands are typically recalled, but a study focusing on necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) may be among the most jarring for new parents. A study has been released that shows premature infants fed formula may be more likely to develop NEC than those receiving breast milk.
NEC is a serious condition that is characterized by tissue death in the intestine. It is fatal in up to 50% of cases, as it has the potential to cause perforations in the intestines. This can cause bacteria from the intestinal tract to leach into the baby’s abdomen and/or bloodstream, causing severe illness or dangerous blood infections. NEC is the leading cause of death by gastrointestinal disease in premature newborns. While this study focused on the impacts of NEC relating to formula in newborns, full-term babies are also susceptible to complications from the condition as well.
Additional Reasons Baby Formula May Be Recalled
NEC is not the only reason baby formula brands have continued to recall their formula at various intervals. Everything from lack of proper nutrition in formula components to improper packaging and beyond has been cited as reasons for recalls in recent years.
Some of the most well-known baby formula brands have been pulled from grocery store shelves, as manufacturers have been forced to contend with their careless actions in releasing products they knew were harmful into the marketplace. Given the significance of formula to nourishing newborn babies, these companies are responsible for getting it right before unleashing dangerous and ineffective formula products into the marketplace.
Why Do You Need Legal Representation?
Particularly in light of the NEC study and the extensive damage formula has been shown to cause in those causes of newborns with this painful and debilitating condition, more parents than ever are seeking justice from the companies responsible for the unimaginable consequences of peddling these products. As more claims are filed and lawsuits ramp up, now is the time to seek justice if this devastating chain of events has impacted your family.
Moreover, many of the manufacturers of some of the most well-known baby formula brands have failed to add warning labels on their products, despite knowing these complications can happen. This means that millions of unsuspecting parents may continue to purchase them, never knowing the risk posed to their vulnerable newborn babies.
