(WWNY) - Military families are being urged to ignore social media posts promising free baby formula from Tricare.

The Military Times reports the inaccurate Facebook post claims: Due to recent shortages and inflation on baby formula, Tricare has a program that supplies baby milk for free based on how much the child consumes within the month.” It refers to supplies from a civilian company, Military Medical Supplies.

According to the Military Times, the post didn’t come from Military Medical Supplies and that company’s owner says it’s also dealing with a nationwide shortage.
