What is “Bare Shelves Joe Biden” doing about formula shortages? The Biden administration has presided over shortages of all sorts of things, but perhaps the scariest is the current shortage of baby formula that keeps the youngest Americans alive. Fox News reports:
Two top Republican lawmakers, who are also mothers, are demanding the Biden administration’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) take swift steps to address the nationwide shortage of baby formula, saying the panic that families are currently feeling is “unacceptable.”
House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., and Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, sent a letter to FDA Commissioner Robert Califf Tuesday, asking for answers on how the administration plans to solve the formula shortage.
The nationwide supply of infant formula has decreased 40% since April, leaving parents of newborns frantic to find food to feed their babies. In addition, Abbott Laboratories announced a Similac recall exacerbating formula shortages in recent months.
“We write today to express great concern with the ongoing shortage of infant formula across the United States,” they state in their letter. “As moms ourselves, we know the stress this is causing in so many households.”
The lawmakers blame Biden’s “inflationary policies,” which is fostering an economy that they say is already making it more difficult on families to fill up their cars with gas and purchase essential groceries.
Hinson and Stefanik point to the infant formula shortage as “another example of how this Administration’s supply chain crisis is harming working families.”
“This has caused panic in communities across the country, as popular stores turn to rationing formula to make their stock last. Parents should never be in a position of not knowing where to procure formula for their babies. Frankly, these empty shelves are unacceptable. Families deserve better,” they write.
