Other major retailers, including CVS, Kroger and Target, are enacting similar policies, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The rationing follows a recall from Abbott Laboratories, which is facing several class-action lawsuits claiming the company’s baby powder formulas are making infants sick with bacterial infections. Abbott’s Similac line is included. Some babies have gotten so sick they have been hospitalized or died.
Some retailers were concerned about supply issues before Abbott’s recall, however, blaming supply chain issues.
A Walgreens representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment this afternoon.
