Enfamil Lipil Lawsuit

A friend of mine sent me this email a little while ago. If you fall into this category you might want to fill out the form below.

If you bought Enfamil LIPIL® Infant Formula you could get
free infant formula or cash from a Settlement.
Records show that you may have bought infant formula in the past. A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about whether Mead Johnson & Company, LLC ("Mead Johnson") falsely represented that Enfamil LIPIL® is the only infant formula that contains DHA and ARA. DHA and ARA are healthy fatty acids. Mead Johnson will pay between $8 million and $12 million in infant formula and cash. No one is claiming that Enfamil LIPIL® is unsafe or challenging the nutrition it provides. Go to for more information and to file a claim online.

Who's Included? You are included if you bought Enfamil LIPIL® infant formula in the United States between October 13, 2005 and March 31, 2010. You are not included if you received Enfamil LIPIL® infant formula through the U.S.D.A.'s Women, Infants and Children program ("WIC") or purchased it for resale.

What Can You Get? Those included in the Settlement will be eligible to receive a payment up to $12 or two free cans of formula. The amount of benefits you may receive will be based on the length of time you bought the formula.

How to Get Benefits? You must submit a Claim Form to get benefits. The Claim Form is available at or by calling 1-866-254-8048. You can submit a Claim Form online or by mail. The deadline to submit a Claim Form is November 25, 2011. Only one claim per household.

Your Other Rights. If you do nothing, your rights will be affected. If you do not want to be legally bound by the Settlement, you must exclude yourself from the Settlement. The deadline to exclude yourself is August 22, 2011. If you do not exclude yourself you will not be able to sue Mead Johnson for any claim relating to the lawsuit. If you stay in the Settlement, you may object to it by August 22, 2011. The Court will hold a hearing on September 26, 2011 to consider whether to approve the Settlement and a request for attorneys' fees up to $3.5 million. You can appear at the hearing, but you don't have to. You can hire your own attorney, at your own expense, to appear or speak for you at the hearing.
For more information or a Claim Form: 1-866-254-8048
