Has there been any recall on baby formula that causes NEC in newborns?

No. Despite so many cases of necrotizing enterocolitis occurring in premature babies who were fed Enfamil and Similac formula, these products are still on the market. As of the spring of 2023, there were 157 cases of NEC in newborns pending in the multidistrict litigation. Baby formula brands in NEC in newborns lawsuits include multiple Enfamil and Similac cow's milk baby formulas. Premature babies given baby formula were at a significantly higher risk of developing necrotizing enterocolitis than those fed exclusively human milk. Baby formula brands named in Similac and Enfamil lawsuits include:

Mead Johnson and Abbott Laboratories, the manufacturers of these products, have no warnings about necrotizing enterocolitis as a side effect of baby formula or proper instructions for their use, according to the lawsuits. Furthermore, the companies marketed their products as safe and beneficial for premature babies despite the potential risks. Parents are suing for financial losses and emotional distress related to their babies' injuries or death. If your baby was fed one of the above products and died of necrotizing enterocolitis, we advise you to contact Atraxia Law, as we can help you obtain financial compensation.
