  • Probably because people steal them.

  • It's because people were stealing it. At least that is what my walmart told me when I inquired.

  • So people don't rip it off!! You must live in a bigger city, maybe? They don't do that here, but when I went to a bigger city I was soooo confused I couldn't find the formula anywhere, so I asked and there it was behind the counter:)

  • that depends on the store you go to and where in town it's located. i live in a "rougher" part of town, and the grocery store right down the street has formula, pregnancy tests, etc... under lock and key. it's because of theft.

    i rarely shop there, but the store about 5 miles away... has formula on the shelves

  • It's behind the counter here at Food Lion, Kroger, and at Wal Mart..I know at the Food Lion it is because of thefts. The thieving is so bad if you want to return something, you need the receipt AND they have to pull up surveillance video to confirm the transaction actually took place.

  • Because people do grab and runs, they grab it, run and then sell for a few dollars less then the store.

  • It gets stolen, not only by people who want to feed babies. It also is used for cutting some illegal drugs.
