Caregivers on WIC:
If your WIC purchased formula is impacted and you would like to switch to another formula, please work with your health care provider to determine the best formula for your baby and get a new WIC formula prescription. WIC formulas are listed on page 2 of the WIC formula prescription.
The Colorado WIC Program apologizes for the concerning and inconvenient situation caused by the Abbott formula recall. WIC is committed to working with stores, speciality pharmacy, and Abbott to ensure you have safe feeding options for your child.
