During the infant formula shortage caused by Abbott Nutrition’s voluntary recall, the President has directed his team to do everything possible to ensure that there is enough safe infant formula in the country and available for families that need it. President Biden announced additional actions to get more formula into the United States and onto store shelves. Some initiatives include:
  • Invoking the Defense Production Act to ensure manufacturers have the necessary ingredients to make safe, healthy infant formula here at home.
  • Launching Operation Fly Formula which will speed up the import of infant formula to get more formula to stores as soon as possible.
  • Work towards Reopening Abbott’s facility so it can once again provide safe, local formula.
