This heartbreaking story arose when a well known food manufacturer began marketing a nutritional supplement marketed to people with the inability to eat regular foods. Our client was a __ year old boy who died in his father’s arms as his father fed him a bottle of the formula. The product had been marketed to doctors and dieticians who believed the product was safe for this young boy. Unbeknownst to anyone but the food company, the product had undisclosed allergens that were fatal to people with certain food allergies. The young boy literally choked in his father’s arms. The food manufacturer attempted to blame our client’s underlying medical conditions and other factors as the cause of his untimely death. More shocking was the assertion that his life had little to no value because of those underlying conditions. The parents of this young man fought to make this company admit its mistake and change its marketing and labeling practices so this would not happen to anyone else.
