More formula options available during shortages

Families participating in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) can now use their benefits for a much wider variety of brands and types of infant formula, helping them access the formula available in stores during national shortages when Gerber products are not available. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has temporarily made 55 additional formula products available to WIC recipients today as part of its efforts to support families during the shortage. This is in addition to the eight options added last week for different sizes and types of Gerber products.
