"Safe Sleep" Bullitt County

The Safe Sleep Campaign is a statewide effort to raise awareness of and help inform parents and other child caregivers of the importance of safe sleep for babies. 

Safe Sleep Kentucky seeks to prevent SIDS-related infant deaths by emphasizing ABCD, the four letters associated with the best practices to make sure infants sleep safely. 

A is for Alone - Stay close, sleep apart

B is for Back - On my back for night and naps

C is for Crib - In a Clean, Clear, Crib

D is for Danger - Be aware, not impaired. Drinking and drug use impair your ability to care for a baby, making bed-sharing and other unsafe sleep even more dangerous for the baby.

Social health is the aspect of overall well-being that stems from connection and community. It is our ability to interact and build valuable and meaningful relationships with others.

Please join us for an eventful afternoon as we discuss this important aspect of mental health. We hope to see you there!

RECALL Information

The makers of Enfamil and Nutramigen, announced it was voluntarily recalling cans of Nutramigen Hypoallergenic Infant Formula Powder, a specialty formula given to infants with cow's milk allergy, following product sample testing outside of the U.S.

Mead Johnson announced on December 30, 2023 that out of an abundance of caution it has chosen to voluntarily recall select batches of Nutramigen LGG powder, due to a remote possibility of cross-contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii in product sampled outside the U.S. The impacted batch codes are in the list below. All product being recalled went through extensive testing by both Mead Johnson and the US FDA, and tested negative for the bacteria. No illnesses or adverse consumer reactions have been reported.

Nutramigen in 12.6 and 19.8 oz containers was manufactured in June 2023 and distributed primarily in June, July, and August 2023. Based on the limited availability of the remaining stock of this special infant formula, it is believed that much, if not all, of the products recalled in the United States have been consumed. The products were distributed through retail stores nationwide. The batches in question can be identified by the batch code on the bottom of the can.



12.6 oz cans








19.8 oz cans


The products have a UPC Code of 300871239418 or 300871239456 and “Use By Date” of “1 Jan 2025”. No other U.S. distributed Nutramigen batches or other Reckitt products are impacted.

If WIC participants are having trouble finding Nutramigen on store shelves, they may obtain a prescription for Alimentum or a store brand hypoallergenic formula.   The doctor may request more than one product on the medical necessity form to avoid multiple visits with the provider.

Members should update their contact information as soon as possible and keep it updated so Kentucky Medicaid is able to reach them when it is their time to renew!

Save Lives with Prevention Awareness

Colorectal cancer, or CRC, is the second deadliest cancer in the United States. Every March, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month spotlights this disease and inspires more people to get checked starting at age 45. Two reasons why getting checked matters: 

  • Screening can find the warning signs of colon and rectal cancer, letting doctors take action to prevent the disease. 
  • Screening can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment is most effective. 

One in 24 people will be diagnosed with CRC in their lifetime, but you can make a difference today. Learn about ways to build awareness, how to get support, and more below. Tomorrow can’t wait!
