Infant Formula Shortage

May 2022

Some families in North Carolina are facing challenges accessing infant formulas. These challenges are related to the February recall of certain Abbott infant formulas, the resulting increased demand for other formula brands, and the lingering effects of supply issues during the pandemic.


During these ongoing shortages, our top priority is to help families access safe, healthy feeding options for their infants. NCDHHS provides these recommendations on what families can do and what they should avoid.
