OOS rates in Kansas reached 50 percent as of May 1, up from 43 percent the week prior, the Kansas City Star reported.

Kansas mother Cara Shockley first learned of the dwindling formula supply from a coworker’s Facebook post in April, which showed naked shelves at a Walmart. Concerned for the well-being of her 14-month-old baby, she headed to her local Walmart in Kansas City.

“I started to get anxious,” Shockley said. “It was completely bare.”
