The popular baby formula brand Enfamil is a necessity for many families — but it doesn’t come cheap.

Tubs of formula cost anywhere from $10 to $150, which quickly adds up. So families expect they’re babies to be getting nothing but the best.

But lately, tubs of Enfamil have been the target of a theft scheme that left some babies in danger, Dearly previously reported.

In multiple states, parents have opened their Enfamil to find it filled with flour instead of valuable formula. 

This occurs when customers buy the formula, remove the contents, and return it resealed to the store filled with flour or corn starch.

Chelsea Bellinger, an Arizona mom, said her baby girl was sick for days after she accidentally gave her a bottle full of flour that was placed in a Enfamil tub she bought.

Other similar incidents have occurred in across the country. 

A mother in Florida shared her story last week, after she found a container of Enfamil purchased from CVS filled with flour. She told ABC Action News:

“The bag was in it like this, this particular sticker was not fully attached and when I opened it up this seal that wraps around was opened. This smells like typical baking flour.” 

Now, CVS has decided to pull the baby formula off it’s shelves. The company said in a statement:

Enfamil powder is temporarily unavailable in our stores due to an internal review being conducted by CVS Pharmacy. Our store employees can assist customers with finding an alternative product in the meantime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

It’s unclear when the product will return to CVS shelves.

In the meantime, Enfamil is emphasizing that this is not a recall of their products. A spokesperson for the brand told ABC Action News:

“There is no recall related to this or other Enfamil branded products.”

Parents are encouraged to inspect their baby formula products before giving it to their child.
