Supply shortages of infant formula are putting unimaginable burdens on parents. The severe shortage of infant formula appears to be a result of supply chain constraints and the shutdown of a major production facility in Michigan. Families are already facing 40-year high inflation and surging energy costs. These parents should not have to also worry about how to feed their babies.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and United States Trade Representative (USTR) owes the public a detailed explanation about the steps the agencies are taking to ensure parents and their babies have access to infant formula. Especially in light of recent news reports indicating that illegal immigrants at the Customs and Border Protection facility in Texas are receiving "'pallets' of baby formula."
