The parents of one baby who died and two who were injured by meningitis after drinking contaminated infant formula have filed suit. The lawsuit accuses the manufacturer, Mead Johnson Nutrition Co., of negligence. The babies were fed Enfamil Premium Newborn and Enfamil Gentlease. Ten-day-old Avery Cornett died December 18, 2011. Two other babies, Porsche Rapacz and Nadilynn Mohler, were injured. The suit cites a history of contamination stretching back to 2000, noting that tests at Mead Johnson facilities have “revealed harmful bacteria in raw ingredients, premix product and finished products.”
