RECALL ALERT: Abbott has issued a recall for Similac powder formulas manufactured in Sturgis, Michigan. These formulas may be contaminated with Cronobacter sakazakii.  For more information, click HERE.


As of October 1, 2021, the Connecticut WIC Program renewed its sole-source contract with Abbott Laboratories® and provides Similac® Advance® or Similac® Isomil® Soy for healthy infants from birth to twelve months of age; whose mothers choose not to breastfeed or partially breastfeed or for whom breastfeeding is medically contraindicated.


WIC also provides alternative Abbott Laboratories® standard formulas including Similac Sensitive®, Similac Total Comfort® and Similac for Spit-Up®.  All three of these formulas provide 20 kcal/ fl. oz at standard dilution.  Similac for Spit-Up® requires an ICD-10 code and medical documentation from the health care provider. 


WIC can also provide women, infants and children NOT dually enrolled in HUSKY/Medicaid and WIC, with special/exempt formulas, such as hypoallergenic, hypercaloric, elemental, and metabolic formulas with an appropriate nutrition related ICD-10 code medical diagnosis. 


This page provides Connecticut WIC staff with formula resources in one place.  Resources posted to this page are intended for State and local agency staff only.  Additional information on Connecticut WIC Program formula can be found in Section 400 of the State Plan.
