I wouldn't use it myself, however someone who is struggling may see it as an absolute godsend.
It's not making every baby sick and well if it was it would be recalled. So I don't see any problem with people posting 1/2 open tins of formula for sale especially if it helps someone.

I wouldn't, in MY personal circumstances, I can afford formula. For someone who can't, is stretching their budget every week to fit it in and who's baby has had no reaction to the change, it would probably be a godsend. In that situation a few days of free food is a great help and I don't see anything wrong with it, at least a baby would get fed.

No way in hell. The is no knowing how long the tin has been opened, how hygienic the person who used it is etc i wouldn't risk it, especially not with a brand that is making so many babies sick.
Even if i had no money i wouldn't risk it, i would find another way (go seek help from charities, find something to sell, beg) I would not use an opened tin of formula, unless perhaps if it was from someone i knew well and trusted, certainly not some stranger.

Not a chance in h3ll. And if they are so broke that you can't afford formula to feed their baby then maybe they should consider giving up the internet and facebook before taking half open tins from strangers.

No way! Saving yourself a few dollars is never worth the risk!

Though i saw a lady asking on a FB parenting group the other day if it was ok to give her baby powdered skim milk for a week until she got paid. The baby was 5 months i think. Im sure in a desperate situation like that people would take it.
