Parents Bring Federal Lawsuit After Tainted Baby Formula Injures Newborn
Date:10/18/2010

CHICAGO, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- A class action lawsuit alleging deceptive business practices has been filed against Abbott Laboratories over claims that the pharmaceutical giant sold millions of tubs of infant powder formula that was contaminated with beetles and beetle larvae.

The lawsuit, which was brought in federal court in Chicago, was filed on behalf of Maria C. Kiely, a mother of a newborn baby boy.  The suit alleges that Abbott knew that its baby formula was tainted for at least six days prior to announcing it to the public.  As a result, the suit claims that the named plaintiff's son, like thousands of babies throughout the country, suffered gastrointestinal health issues as a result of ingesting the tainted formula.

The lawsuit is brought by Jay Edelson and Rafey S. Balabanian of Edelson McGuire, LLC.  According to managing partner, Jay Edelson, this case seems especially problematic for Abbott.  "What we have found is that certain companies handle product recalls in an upfront and transparent way.  We believe that we can prove that Abbott did the opposite and sat on information while babies got sick."

Edelson McGuire has had numerous high-profile product recall lawsuits, including a $30 million settlement involving the Thomas the Tank lead paint recalls.
