Women, Infants, & Children (WIC)

Baby formula recall

Do you need baby formula now?
Certain powdered baby formula products were recalled in mid-February, 2022, because of possible bacterial contamination at the manufacturing plant. Now some shortages of baby formula have been reported in the United States.
WIC participants in Yellowstone, Carbon, Stillwater and Musselshell counties who are having trouble finding formula for their babies should contact RiverStone Health WIC at 406.247.3370.
All recalled products have been removed from stores and any recalled formula already sold should have been returned by now. The recall included Similac, Alimentum and EleCare powdered infant formulas.

The recalled products have these codes on the bottom of the container:
* The first two digits of the code are 22 through 37; and
* The code on the container contains K8, SH or Z2; and
* The expiration date is 4-1-2022 (APR 2022) or later.
WIC participants who were using these products before the recall were contacted previously by text message.
