Bayer Novalac Allergy Infant Formula Update

Due to supply challenges, Bayer is expecting temporary out of stock of Novalac Allergy Infant Formula in pharmacies across Australia, with normal supply resuming late March to early April. Limited availability may continue in April in some pharmacies across Australia as stock levels rebuild. Other products in the Novalac range are not suitable for infants with cow’s milk protein allergy.

As the distributor of Novalac Allergy, Bayer is working closely with the global manufacturer to improve supply and apologise for this disruption, particularly as babies who are fed Novalac Allergy Infant Formula are vulnerable patients with specialised nutrition requirements.

Parents and carers are encouraged to contact their local pharmacy to check stock levels before going in-store. If they are unable to find Novalac Allergy in pharmacies, it is recommended that they speak to their healthcare professional who can provide medical advice about alternative products specifically for their baby, which are listed on the ASCIA website
