More About The Lawsuit
It is believed that popular premature or preterm baby formulas such as Similac and Enfamil may put babies at an increased risk for developing necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Unfortunately, the manufacturers of Similac and Enfamil formulas for premature babies did not warn of the increased risk of NEC.
NEC is a life-threatening gastrointestinal disorder. It can cause intestinal necrosis which can lead to organ failure and potentially death.
The formulas currently being investigated for a link to NEC by Wettermark and Keith include:
- Similac NeoSure
- Similac Special Care
- Similac Human Milk Fortifier
- Enfamil Premature
- Enfamil NeuroPro
- Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier
Potentially linked injuries to premature or preterm babies include:

Investigations of potential claims focus on the manufacturers of the formulas for failing to warn of the potential dangers. It is believed doctors and other medical professionals were not made aware of the issues with these formulas.
