The nationwide baby formula shortage has left some parents desperately searching for their trusted brand as store shelves remain bare. Some social media users are advising people who can’t find their baby’s formula to switch their Amazon accounts from the U.S. to Canada. One viral tweet read: “You can get all the formula you need. They are not having a shortage just the US. is.”
… Google Trends data show that people are searching for information about how to buy formula from Canada and other countries outside of the U.S. But Amazon Canada won’t ship baby formula orders to U.S. parents. Though some third-party sellers who sell their items independently on Amazon may do so, experts warn against buying formula products from other countries.
… And according to Amazon, U.S. customers can’t purchase baby formula products from Amazon Canada if they are sold and shipped by Amazon or sold by third-party sellers and shipped by Amazon.
