Poll: Have you been impacted by the baby formula shortage?

For two weeks, baby formula has been out of stock at many local grocery stores.

Four children got bacterial infections because of formula made at the Abbot plant and two children died. Now more than 40% of the country’s baby formula supply is now out of stock. Many chain stores have been rationing the supplies to ensure more parents are able to access formula, but locals are still having to find other ways to get food.

The City has said that parents can use whole cow’s milk for short periods as a replacement and offered a list of dos and don’ts for parents.

Some locals have started a Facebook group called NOVA Baby Formula Finding Network and restaurateurs from the Homegrown Restaurant Group found 10 cases of formula they donated to local nonprofit ALIVE!.
