Klein v. O’Neal, Inc.
In this $110 million class action settlement, our attorneys fought against the manufacturer of an intravenous vitamin E supplement called E-Ferol. This supplement was responsible for the death of 43 infants and caused brain damage to 23 in the class of 369 recipients. E-Ferol was placed on the market in November 1983, without any FDA approval or testing, and recalled after four months. The parents of the deceased infants and the recipients themselves were not aware that they had received this supplement since it was included in the intravenous infant formula. The emulsifier in the product, polysorbate 80, caused liver damage and the destruction of platelets which resulted in the injuries and death of E-Ferol class members.
