Alternative Formula Options

Formula Recall

In February, a recall on Similac, Alimentum and Elecare powdered formula products put the US in one the largest formula shortages in history.

Look for all of the following conditions to see if your formula is included in the recall: 1) First two digits of the code are 22-37, AND 2) On the container contains “K8”, “SH” or “Z2”, AND Use-by date is 4/1/2022. Or click on the link to Abbott’s website to check the code at https://www.similacrecall.com/us/en/product-lookup.html\

Below is a list of alternatives for formula. Please call our office if you need advice of what formula your baby should be taking. Further Advise and information for parents and caregivers can be found on the CDC website. Cronobacter Illnesses Linked to Powdered Infant Formula | CDC
