On 2/17/2022, Abbott Nutrition initiated a voluntary recall of certain powdered infant formulas. Products made at the Sturgis facility can be found across the United States. FDA is continuing to investigate and will update this advisory should additional consumer safety information become available. 


The FDA is advising consumers not to use recalled Similac®, Alimentum®, or EleCare® powdered infant formulas. Recalled products can be identified by the 7 to 9 digit code and expiration date on the bottom of the package (see image below). Products are included in the recall if they have all three items below: 

  • 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.

Additional recall information is available on the FDA website. Parents can also enter their product lot code here to check if it is part of the recall.

WIC waivers have been extended by USDA.  Due to the waivers, Hawaii WIC clinics are able to provide all services remotely by phone, mail and electronic correspondence. Call your WIC clinic directly with any questions.

The waivers allow some flexibility in the allowed food list. During this time when it might be hard to find what you need at the stores, we want to help you buy the WIC foods on your eWIC account.

  • Trays of 6 and 18 eggs are temporarily allowed when trays of 12 eggs are not available.
  • Boiled eggs are allowed when trays of 12 eggs are not available.
  • Multi-packs of juice boxes or individual juice cans when 46-48 oz containers are not available.
  • 14 ounce silken, medium firm, firm, or extra firm tofu when 16 ounce tofu is not available.

To check if a brand is WIC allowed, please use the WICShopper App to scan the UPC code. Check back here for more food options soon.
