Formula Shortage Still an Issue in Amarillo Stores Limiting Purchase
This has been a crazy past few months. If you have a baby that is formula fed you probably have noticed the issues in the store. First, there was a formula shortage. We noticed it here in Amarillo.
Turns out it was more widespread than that. We started noticing people all over make comments. Then Similac issued a voluntary recall. Of course, that didn't help matters at all. Soon you couldn't find formula anywhere.
Then the panic. It was already bad. We went to looking online for food for my daughter's baby girl. Still can't believe I am a Mimi. Nothing was available and then after the recall forget about it. We had to worry about returning the formula involved in the recall.
Then we had to worry about finding more formula before the couple of good cans we had ran out. What do you do? We went to every store. The shelves were all pretty bare.
We talked to a friend who is on WIC and the offices had to change up a lot of people's formulas due to the recall and shortage. So a lot of babies were having to get used to a new formula. Several had upset tummy's during the transition.
I first notice Market Street United's putting a limit on the number of cans you could buy at a time. I understood that. It was hard to keep anything on the shelves as it was.
Now several more stores are following suit. According to the Wall Street Journal:
Walmart, Target and Walgreens are now limiting the amount of baby formula that you can purchase because of a formula shortage. Consumers can only buy five containers of baby formula at a time.
Hopefully, this all works itself out sooner than later. I feel like I have been saying this for a while now. Our babies need to get back to having the formula that they require.
