Baby Food Manufacturer Held Accountable in $60M Lawsuit

The jury found formula manufacturing giant Mead Johnson liable and awarded the plaintiffs $60 million — $35 million more than plaintiff’s attorneys were asking. 

The company was accused of not doing enough to warn parents about the increased risk of a deadly disease in premature babies given their formula called Necrotizing Enterocolotis, or NEC for short.

The trial involving a Fairview Heights mother who lost one of her twin premature babies is the first of hundreds of similar case cases that are part of multidistrict litigation. The I-Team found more than 330 lawsuits filed nationally on the topic.
