Necrotizing enterocolitis can be described as a gastrointestinal condition that is most commonly seen in babies born before the 37th week of their pregnancy (premature infants). It causes inflammation in the intestines which causes cells to die and holes to develop. This creates a path for harmful and potentially deadly bacteria to invade and get into the intestines.
If your child received bovine (cow's milk) baby formula at the NICU or maternity ward in an institution. It may have also received bovine-based formula as a gift from the hospital. Unfortunately, your child might have later identified with baby formula causing NEC which is a condition that can be fatal, then you may be able to proceed for a toxic baby formula lawsuit.
