THERE'S FORMULA IN ALASKA STORES

The pandemic has reached into homes in a subtle new way.  Currently there's a nationwide problem in finding baby formula for infants under six months old.

Contamination at a major supplier, a limited number of formula producers, and basic supply chain issues have all made a perfect storm. Since babies need special care, if you have a baby, it's important that you monitor the problem, and reach out for help if you need it.
 
According to Melanie McGinness, at Copper River Native Association, May 19th, 2022:
 

MESSAGE FROM CRNA, 822-5241

CRNA  has been following national and state news regarding the infant formula shortage.
 
It is CRNA's understanding that this shortage has impacted families in the region. 
 
Fortunately, our local grocery still has formula on the shelves and our providers have received word that formula is obtainable in Anchorage.
 
While, it is likely that the formula available is not a leading brand, due to recent recalls, safe alternative brands remain available. 
 
We encourage any person with questions about infant nutritional needs to reach out to our Primary Care providers.
