Similac Baby Formula Recall
Several brands of baby formula have been recalled, including Similac, EleCare, and Alimentum. The recalled formula has an expiration date of 4/1/2022. Consumers should contact their health care providers immediately if they notice any signs of illness in their baby after feeding them with Similac.
The affected formula has a lot of numbers that can be found near the expiration date. You can find more information about the recalled formulas on the company’s website Similac Baby Formula. Among the pending Similac recall cases are two consumer class actions and 16 product liability lawsuits.
The Similac recall lawsuits seek to represent thousands of unidentified infants. The lawsuits allege that the Similac formula may have contributed to bacterial infections in children. This recall has led to a preliminary report from the FDA. The agency said that Abbott failed to take proper precautions to protect infants from contamination and other risks.
Assuming the case proceeds to a jury trial, it is likely that Abbott’s lawyers will argue that the company did not have the duty to warn consumers about the dangers of Similac formula. However, this argument does not hold up in a court of law. The company’s lawyers will argue that the law protects the consumer, and the FDA will have to review the lawsuit. A jury trial would be a more likely outcome, so plaintiffs should not worry.
