New York State Attorney General Letitia James is warning businesses that price gouging is illegal as parents struggle to find baby formula during a nationwide shortage.
Authorities say that parents should not pay if they think prices at the store are inflated. 
“Anyone who seeks to take advantage of this crisis is on notice. I also urge any parent who is struggling to find formula to speak with their child’s doctor before altering or using formula other than directed,” says James.
If you think a retailer is overcharging, report it! You can file a complaint with your state. Below are the links to their forms:

To report: 

Provide the specific increased prices, the dates, and places that you saw the increased prices, and the types of formula being sold; and
Provide copies of the sales receipts and photos of the advertised prices, if available.
