November 14, 2017:
Bayer Australia Ltd (Bayer) has advised that they are experiencing a temporary shortage of Novalac Allergy rice protein based infant formula. This has resulted in very limited supply in pharmacies throughout Australia.
Bayer is working to increase the supply of Novalac Allergy to meet local requirements, and it is anticipated that stock will be available from pharmacies in early December 2017.
It is important to note that out of the Novalac range of infant formula, only Novalac Allergy is suitable for use in children diagnosed with cow’s milk protein allergy.
Please contact Bayer’s Medical Information Team on 1800 008 757 if you have any questions.
