Betrayed By a Brand You Trust
Not everyone can breastfeed, and baby formula is usually a safe and reliable alternative. But when we can't trust manufacturers to ethically produce and distribute formula, they should be held accountable. Here are some facts about Enfamil:
- Enfamil has been around for decades and has been a top-selling brand of infant formula in the United States.
- The company's products contain cow's milk, soybeans, corn syrup solids, vegetable oil, and artificial flavors.
- Some children fed with Enfamil suffered severe health issues like brain damage, growth problems, and even death.
- There have been several baby formula lawsuits filed against the manufacturer of Enfamil because of these reported injuries.
Enfamil is the leading brand name of baby formula manufactured by Mead Johnson Nutrition Company. The primary ingredient in Enfamil is cow's milk, and it comes in various forms such as powder, liquid, ready-to-feed, and concentrated formula. In addition, Enfamil has multiple flavors, including chocolate. Both infants and toddlers can use Enfamil.
While Enfamil production includes cow's milk, it is 100% free of lactose and casein. In addition, it does not contain any genetically modified organisms (GMO) or synthetic ingredients. Enfamil is one of the most popular brands of baby formula available today. Its popularity is attributed to its high nutritional value and low cost.
Symptoms to Watch Out for From Your Child That Drank Enfamil Formula
There have been numerous studies conducted on Enfamil's safety. According to NBC News, the FDA has not found evidence suggesting that Enfamil poses any risks to consumers. However, some parents still believe their children have developed allergies after being fed with Enfamil.
There are three main concerns regarding Enfamil:
- Allergic reactions
- Brain damage
- Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)
According to the American Family Physician, allergic reactions are common among infants who consume baby formula. These reactions include hives, eczema, and asthma.
Some parents claim that they noticed redness or swelling in their babies' eyes when they first started feeding them with Enfamil. They believed that an allergy caused this.
Additionally, Enfamil contains high levels of sodium, which can cause dehydration. This condition can lead to serious health complications.
Another concern about Enfamil is that it can cause brain damage. Enfamil may not have all the nutrients your child needs. You may need to use supplements such as vitamin D, which helps people process calcium. Some people worry use of formulas like Enfamil harms babies' brain development.
Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)
The third issue surrounding Enfamil is Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). This disease occurs when the intestines become inflamed and die off. It usually affects premature babies who are underweight at birth.
This problem can be fatal for newborns. If left untreated, it can result in bowel obstruction, perforation to the intestines, and sepsis. Enfamil manufacturers have not warned consumers about these dangers, and the product labels still don't have warnings of these issues.
Are Enfamil's Ingredients a Cause for Concern?
The ingredients of Enfamil are not toxic or inherently dangerous. However, they can pose some risks to some infants and toddlers.
Cow's milk is considered the safest type of milk for babies. It contains essential nutrients for proper development. It also provides calcium, protein, vitamin D, and other minerals vital for healthy bones, teeth, muscles, and nerves.
Soybean oil is another critical component of Enfamil. It is rich in omega fatty acids, which provide essential nutrients. These include vitamins A, E, B1, B2, B3, C, D, and K. Omega fatty acids help improve children's vision, skin, hair, and immune system.
Corn Syrup Solids
Corn syrup solids are added to Enfamil to enhance its flavor. They are also used to prevent the product from separating during storage.
The vegetable oil in Enfamil acts as a stabilizer. It helps maintain the consistency of the formula and enhances the product's taste.

We can help hold the company responsible for the damages Enfamil use has caused infants and toddlers. We can show that the product was defective and that the defect caused your injuries.
What Are My Legal Options?
Our law firm offers clients several options for pursuing a potential personal injury lawsuit. First, we can represent you in court if necessary. However, most cases settle out of court without going to trial. In addition, many companies agree to pay settlements as soon as possible after being notified of a potential claim.
We can also negotiate with the defendant's insurance carrier. Insurance carriers often prefer to resolve claims through negotiations rather than trials because it costs money to defend lawsuits.
