Temporary Formula Options for South Dakota WIC Participants

Updated July 29, 2022

On February 17, 2022 Abbott voluntarily issued a recall of certain powdered formulas including Similac Advance®, Similac Total Comfort®, Similac for Spit-Up®, Similac Sensitive®, Similac Alimentum®, Similac EleCare®, and Similac PM 60/40® that were manufactured in Sturgis, Michigan. Find more information about the recall and how to determine if you have recalled products here.

South Dakota WIC participants affected by the Abbott formula recall can temporarily purchase additional formula brands, but we encourage you to purchase Similac when it is available at the stores. Check the lot number on the bottom of the can to ensure it is not part of the recall.

Always follow safe practices when feeding your baby. Learn more here.
