Premature Infants (Born Before 37 Weeks) Fed Cow’s Milk–Based Formulas Can Potentially Develop Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)

Those families impacted may be eligible if they were:

  • Born prematurely (before 37 weeks);
  • Given Similac® or Enfamil® in hospital;
  • Diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC);
  • Forced to feed through a gastrostomy tube (g-tube, aka peg tube); and,
  • Affected with serious complications that may include surgeries to repair intestinal perforations, short bowel syndrome (SBS), brain damage, and more

AFFF has been widely used at a variety of facilities for both training and emergency response purposes, including airports, military bases, firefighting training facilities, oil and gas refineries, and petroleum and chemical bulk storage facilities.

Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) and Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)

PFAS in AFFF is toxic and carcinogenic to humans, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

AFFF's ability to extinguish hydrocarbon fires effectively and efficiently has led to its widespread use anywhere liquid and gas-based fires occur-however, the use of AFFF has released PFAS into the environment in mass quantities and in an uncontrolled manner.

Due to its ability to persist in the environment, PFAS can travel long distances in groundwater without breaking down-this can lead to the contamination of drinking water supplies.

The families of premature babies (born BEFORE 37 weeks) who are victims of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) after taking cow’s milk-based formula or fortifier deserve justice. 

What necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is and the complications that it may cause? 

National studies demonstrated how the potential for developing Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) in premature infants (before 37 weeks) increases with cow’s milk-based infant formula while decreasing with breast milk.

A US District Court heard and decided on a complaint in 2011 of serious allegations that Abbott Laboratories® and Mead Johnson & Company, LLC® were directly responsible for a premature infant (before 37 weeks) dying from Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC).

The baby passed after just 16 days in intensive care because the manufacturer opted not to warn parents of the potential for a Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) diagnosis.
