The USDA is extending formula waivers for WIC families

The Department of Agriculture is making sure families continue to have access to the infant formula they need.

They have extended a series of waivers to provide WIC families with additional formula options through the end of the year. Originally the waivers were set to expire at the end of September.

This follows a recall of certain Abbott Powder infant formulas and the pandemic caused major supply chain issues.
