Baby Formula Shortage
Our hearts go out to the families affected by the shortage of certain types of infant formula in the US. We know it is distressing for parents when they cannot find their first choice of formula for babies.
Our US counterparts have been working endlessly to address the formula shortage and help meet the demand. The team has significantly increased the amount of formula available to consumers by ramping up production and accelerating the import of specialty formula produced at FDA registered factories outside the country to expedite availability and serve immediate needs.
In Canada, we have a stable supply of formula for healthy term infants, but the market is experiencing a shortage of specialty formula. While Nestlé does not sell these formulas in Canada, we are working around the clock to endeavour to bring in some Nestlé specialty formula from other countries. Through our proactive actions such as working closely with Health Canada and our factories, we continue to work hard to deliver a consistent supply of Good Start across the Canadian marketplace.
We understand it’s a challenging time and we are here to help. You can contact us at 1-800-387-5536 for more information. Any decisions made around feeding your baby should be made in consultation with your healthcare professional.
