I saw on the news last night that due to tainted formula in China, relatives in Oz are buying the Karicare Aptimal Gold formula in massive quantities, rapidly depleting supply in stores. Just wondering if anyone has been to the shops since this and if the standard Karicare formula is low in stock? Am at work today and will slip out at lunchtime to stock up if necessary.

I had a look yesterday out of interest at my local coles and woollies - both had sold out of infant but had the follow-on. Bellamy's was also sold out.

Good luck!

I work for a GP and we've just had a fax come through from the manufacturers. It says that whilst supplies are low in supermarkets etc it should be readily available from either of these online retail sites:

www.terrywhitechemists.com.au or www.pharmacydirect.com.au

Just in case you have trouble finding any.

This happened in NZ recently and now there is a limit on how many tins of formula you can buy at supermarkets here thank god. All the Chinese were buying it up and shipping back there and NZ babies were missing out! Hopefully the Oz supermarkets will follow the same plan to stop this. Best of luck.
