Nice. Real class act they are. And wouldnt you know, they were "bought for them". I bet.

No, this isnt to debate WIC, which is a WONDERFUL program used the right way by most. Its just to point out that a lot of people are assholes. These should be turned into the WIC office so they can give them out or donate them to a food pantry

I doubt they were WIC.  WIC only supplies Gerber now, not Similac.  When I've sold my Enfamil I always put "bought for my son" Based on the ad I'd not assume nor imagine this was a WIC purchase

 In MI as long as you have a prescription for a specific formula, they will buy it. That is a very commonly prescribed formula. And in MI....Gerber isnt common

It depends on the state. When I had WIC with my oldest, my state had a contract with Similac. A friend is having a baby next month, and it is now Enfamil in my state. I always donate my formula samples (or rejects in the case of my MSPI son) because although I don't get WIC anymore, I would hate for someone to think I was doing something shady anyway. It happens a lot where I live, unfortunately.

not true. we are on WIC right now and we get similac. in fact we can get any formula we want. when I went in there they asked what formula we use and want. we could get whatever we want. it just depends on the local office I guess.

Here all wic uses is enfamil premium but with a dr note they will provide any formula.
