A new study has linked certain baby formulas with an increased risk in necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
Necrotizing enterocolitis is a digestive disease that impacts newborn children, often times premature babies. The bacteria enters the body and erodes the intestinal lining and causes infection. Some symptoms of NEC are:
NEC is treated by strong antibiotics and discontinuing all oral feeding. Nutrients are supplied intravenously until the infection is eliminated.
Infants with NEC may have future digestive health problems into their adult life.
We allege that the makers of the formula knew the increased risk of NEC for many years but failed to warn parents and doctors of the risk.
