Washington, DC--Caron Gremont, Director of Early Childhood for the No Kid Hungry Campaign, issued the following statement on the infant formula recall and shortage currently gripping the nation:
No parent should have to worry about how they’re going to feed their child. We know parents are hurt, angry and scared about the infant formula recall and shortage, especially those whose babies require special formulas because of allergies or other medical conditions. And the situation is even more challenging for moms who use the WIC program to buy formula and don’t have the ability to stock up or buy online.
Proper nutrition in infancy is critical to a child’s development. We urge families to consult their healthcare provider when switching formulas. For help locating safe formula, check out these resources:

For more information on the government’s response to the infant formula recall and shortage, we encourage you to learn more from the National WIC Association.
