Infant Formula Updates
Learn more about infant formula, the recent shortage, and find product recalls.
We are continuing to navigate through the issues related to the nationwide infant formula shortage. If you have any questions, check with your baby’s physician or healthcare provider, especially if your baby is on a restricted diet or has any medical conditions. Learn more:
If you choose to shop online, purchase only from well-recognized distributors and pharmacies rather than individually sold or auction sites. You may not know what you’re actually getting, and there is little or no control over pricing.
If you are still pregnant but will deliver soon, please give extra consideration to breastfeeding. Most women can breastfeed, and you are likely to avoid the formula shortage altogether. For more information, see below.
