California law holds companies liable for injuries caused by their products, even if the injury is preventable. The lawsuit alleges that companies failed to adequately warn consumers of the risk of NEC from cow milk-based infant formula products. While no company wants to admit that its products are defective, this does not excuse companies from making and marketing dangerous products. In fact, some companies are even liable for the deaths of newborns after they consume them.
Few Ingredients That Are Better For Your Baby’s Health
Many parents have complained about the dangers of cow milk-based infant formula, but there are some who still insist that the products are safe. However, a panel of federal judges recently consolidated several lawsuits related to the potential risks of NEC. This lawsuit shows that infants fed with bovine-based formula have a significantly higher risk of developing the condition, which leads to the painful destruction of the intestines and can result in death.
Studies show that cow milk-based infant formulas can lead to a potentially fatal intestinal condition called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). While this condition is rare, it can affect premature babies, especially those born before 37 weeks. NEC can lead to short bowel syndrome, neurological disabilities, and even narrowed intestines. While the symptoms of NEC are often severe, there is no cure for it.
While the exact cause of NEC is still unclear, multiple clinical studies have shown a connection between cow milk and the risk of NEC. Plaintiffs in these cases are seeking compensation for their medical costs. For now, there is no definitive answer to this issue. Parents are encouraged to consult a medical professional about the potential risks of their infants. Even if the cause isn’t clear, the lawsuits will continue until a resolution is reached.
