The USDA *controls* the WIC program and only allows the families to purchase through the WIC program, essentially creating the monopoly by 3 companies. Grocery stores mainly stock (72%) of formula for WIC families to purchase. These are the THREE COMPANIES approved by the Federal govt to contract with the States.

I'm sorry you don't understand how this monopoly was created in Washington D.C. It's so much easier to blame the corporations instead of the government bureaucrats who created this monstrosity.
