Baby formula shortage: scams and black-market cases | #socialmedia


The baby formula recall and shortage have prompted the Better Business Bureau to issue a warning about people taking advantage of the situation and scamming buyers.

In the warning issued last week, the BBB said buying formula online from sellers on Facebook and other social media platforms is especially risky.

However, the high price of baby formula has made it an attractive target for criminals and the black market for decades. A 2018 report from the New York Times outlined the nationwide issue.

There have been two major cases involving the alleged theft and resale of baby formula in the Greater Cincinnati area with one of those cases still pending in federal court.
