As Colorado Springs personal injury lawyers we know that the most vulnerable are also the youngest. Our babies rely on us to make sure that they are kept healthy and out of harm’s way. That means protecting them by the safety seats we put them in and the food we feed them. It was the latter that became an issue for some parents in Colorado Springs, but it seems the fault lies with a nearby supermarket.
Apparently, baby formula that had been expired for over a month was left on the shelves at a superstore near Powers and Palmer Park. One mother purchased the soy formula and noticed a “weird smell” before realizing that the formula had expired on March 1st.
When she went to return the formula, she noticed that several packages on the shelves were also past their expiration date. It wasn’t until a team from 11 News visited the store that the packages were finally removed and managers promised to look throughout the store to make sure no other baby formulas were expired.
The FDA is very clear about not feeding infants formula that is past its ‘use by’ date as it can make the child very ill. As personal injury lawyers in Colorado Springs, we believe it’s something you need to look into for yourself. You never know if absentmindedness at the store has played a factor, and your child’s health is never worth the risk.
