Novalac Allergy infant formula is back in supply

27 March 2018

Bayer Australia Ltd (Bayer), has advised ASCIA that the infant formula Novalac Allergy is back in supply and now being delivered to wholesalers for distribution to pharmacies.

Over the next ten working days this stock will be added to supply already in pharmacies across Australia. The temporary shortage of the formula was due to an unprecedented demand for the product.

Bayer would like to reassure Australian healthcare professionals of their commitment to increasing supply of Novalac Allergy.

Bayer offers a range of specially-developed infant formula under the Novalac range. These products (with the exception of Novalac Allergy) are unsuitable for children diagnosed with cow’s milk protein allergy or who are unable to tolerate cow’s milk formula.

It is important that parents/carers always read the ingredients label to ensure the suitability of the product they are buying and ask healthcare professionals for advice.

Please contact Bayer’s Medical Information Team on 1800 008 757 should you have any questions.
