When my son Joseph was born last August, he was underweight. The doctors recommended that I breastfeed and supplement with formula. I was devastated.

He is the first child for me and my husband, and when I was pregnant I dreamed of exclusively breastfeeding. But like many other families, that was not an option.

After overcoming my hesitation towards the formula, I was reassured that Joey was doing well and gaining weight and renewed my hope for a bright future for our new family. But it was quickly replaced by a new concern. In January, I noticed growing holes on the shelves of formula stores.


Having worked in retail throughout the pandemic, I thought the supply chain issues plaguing the rest of the economy — everything from pet food to toilet paper — were finally reaching and inevitably the formula supply.

So I started buying more, aware of the hoarding mentality that compounded the initial grocery shortages and not wanting to satiate my hidden fears.

Then the encore hit, and it was hard to put my fear aside. Abbott (the maker of Similac formula, among others) recalled its powder formula and closed a manufacturing facility in Sturgis, Michigan. The stoppage suddenly escalated what was initially a reason for caution to explode into near panic.
