Toxic Baby Formula

Toxic Baby Formula Similac and Enfamil have been linked to Digestive Disease and Death 

At the advisement of pediatric medical professionals, many times, it’s suggested premature infants take a unique baby formula to help aid their developing bodies. But, recently, it’s come to our attention that two brands of baby formula cause harm and sometimes death to infants.

The baby formula products Similac, manufactured by Abbott Laboratories, and Enfamil, created by Mead Johnson and Company, have been linked to a digestive disease called Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). NEC causes inflammation of the intestinal lining, leading to potentially serious infections. In severe cases, NEC erodes the walls of their intestines which allows bacteria to enter the intestinal tract. Survivors of NEC have long-term injuries, pain and suffering, and loss of life’s enjoyment.

Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson and Company are currently aware of their product’s cause to premature infants.

A study with almost ten years of data showed infants who used Similac or Enfamil were six to ten times more likely to develop NEC. In addition, there are several active lawsuits against the parents of children affected by the baby formula.

Even with the mountain of data, evidence, and active lawsuits, the FDA has not recalled the products. Further, Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson are aware of the risks associated with their products, yet they have not warned parents or the public. They continue to profit from toxic baby formula.
