NEC Lawsuit Sees Higher-than-average New Case Volume 2 Months in a Row

As of May 2024, an additional 50 new cases were joined in the NEC baby formula lawsuits. There are now 496 pending NEC cases in this multidistrict litigation.

Jury Awards $60M in Enfamil Case

In March 2024, a major verdict in Illinois mandated Mead Johnson, makers of Enfamil, to pay $60 million to the mother of a premature baby who died of an intestinal disease after being fed the company’s Enfamil baby formula due to their failure to warn about the risks of NEC associated with their formulas.

Failure to Warn Leads to Devastating Outcomes for Babies

Research and cases have shown that cow-milk-based formulas may significantly increase the risk of NEC in premature infants, a condition that can lead to fatal complications. Plaintiffs argue that the manufacturers, Mead Johnson and Abbott, failed to provide adequate warnings about this risk, despite evidence suggesting the danger to vulnerable infants.

The lawsuits claim that better warnings could have led parents or caregivers to choose different, safer options for infant nutrition. These legal actions seek compensation for the devastating health outcomes allegedly caused by these formulas.
