Studies have linked some infant formulas to a life-threatening condition called NEC. NEC stands for necrotizing enterocolitis. Cow's milk-based formulas may increase a preterm infant's risk of NEC. Cow's milk-based fortifiers have also been tied to NEC.
Infants with NEC have experienced intestinal damage and perforation requiring surgery. It has even resulted in death. As a result, families are now taking legal action against baby formula manufacturers.
