CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It's all about cases of free baby formula.

Several people have posted on social media saying that if you can't get your hands on baby formula you can call the number on the back of the canister and the company will send you free cases.

So, is this true?

Our fact check team contacted Gerber and Enfamil, makers of baby formula.

They tell us that it’s fiction.

The companies say contrary to rumors on some online social networks, the company is not distributing free cases of formula.

However, the company says it is "focused on ensuring availability for every baby based on what they know and in anticipation of what might develop in the coming weeks."

We have reached out to other companies that make baby formula, but have not heard back.
