Baby Formula Shortage Still A Disaster Under Biden’s “Leadership”

Now, just imagine this was occurring under President Trump: it would be pretty big news across all the Credentialed Media outlets, blasting him for failing to fix the problem. Instead, under Let’s Go Brandon, it’s a small story, barely mentioned, and mostly minimized

US formula shortage persists and will ‘take a while to fix’

The nationwide baby formula shortage that federal leaders once said would be fixed within weeks has dragged on for months, despite tons of imports and key steps forward in domestic production.

“Federal leaders”? How would CNN write that if Trump were still around?

The nationwide baby formula shortage that Donald Trump once said would be fixed within weeks has dragged on for months, despite tons of imports and key steps forward in domestic production, imperiling the health of babies, causing outcry from parents. House leader Nancy Pelosi stated that “Trump has utterly failed American parents.” Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez proclaimed “he should resign.”


Over the past two months, the Biden administration has announced more than a dozen missions to bring formula into the US through Operation Fly Formula. The announcements total more than 4 million pounds of formula — and the latest one says that enough to make about 61 million 8-ounce bottle equivalents will be delivered by the end of this week.

That’s the only mention of “Biden”, and not even specifically the Chump in Chief specifically

More than 20% of formula products — powder, ready-to-drink and liquid — have been out of stock for the past six weeks, according to data released Wednesday by market research firm Information Resources Inc. Before the recall, about 10% of infant formula products were typically out of stock.

Wait, it’s worse?

Families despair as America’s baby formula shortage again gets WORSE: Biden announces his 17th international delivery as out-of-stock numbers rise to highest level this year

But, despite the rash of flights the administration has announced, U.S. stores are still struggling to stock baby formula on their shelves.

Formula availability dropped to its lowest level so far this year, with about 30% of products out of stock for the week ended July 3, according to the market-research firm IRI.

And the number jumps to 30% for close to right now.

Baby formula shortage getting worse despite Biden airlifts

The ongoing shortage of baby formula across the United States has become more acute in recent weeks, despite the Biden administration flying in millions of bottles worth of formula from across the world over the past two months.

According to the market research firm IRI, 28.3% of powdered baby formula products were out of stock at US stores for the week ending July 10 — a higher percentage than the 23.7% reported out of stock for the week ending May 22, when the shortage dominated headlines.

The most recent availability figure was a slight improvement from the previous week, when the out-of-stock percentage stood at 29.5%, the highest figure so far this year. By contrast, the normal out-of-stock range prior to the COVID-19 pandemic hovered between 5% and 7%.

OK, slightly better. But, a 1.2% improvement is nothing to crow about

(Breitbart) Rep Kat Cammack (R-Fla) stated, [relevant remarks begin around 1:46:45] “[T]his was back in April and May, and it’s now July. And just last week, a bill comes to the floor and it actually removes the tariffs for importing formula. Why does it take so long for us to actually take action, or the Biden FDA, which was responsible for this shortage in the first place? Because don’t forget, it was the Biden FDA that shut down the nation’s largest manufacturer of baby formula without any plan to backfill the supplies and no plan to get this factory back online. And so, I think it’s pretty ridiculous that, despite the fact that we’ve had national outrage, that there has been legislation that has been passed, that we are literally flying in cargo planes of baby formula, having passed legislation to ease the labeling issues, that there’s still a shortage. And it’s not because of supply and demand. We didn’t just all of a sudden randomly start having more babies. It’s because the Biden administration can’t get out of its own way. They are so terrible at absolutely everything that they still, to this day, cannot get something that they broke just back to functioning. So, this is a real problem, and elections have consequences.”

Way to go, Brandon! I’m sure he’s working hard at the beach every weekend.

    Abbott conducted a voluntary recall when consumers reported sick babies and deaths. Abbott shut down its site.

    The shortage began in 2020 as consumers stockpiled due to COVID-19 lockdowns. Formula makers ramped up production but then cut back in 2021 as demand slowed. Global shipping logjams have also prevented retailers from promptly restocking shelves.

    The 2020 United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), which established new trading rules for business and trade across North America and placed heavy restrictions on Canada’s dairy sector.

    As part of the multinational trade agreement, a new wave of red tape was added to the process of importing baby formula produced in Canada. Tariffs on Canadian infant formula are high, around 17 per cent, and the United States imported no baby formula from Canada in 2021.
