Biden cites the Defense Manufacturing Act due to a shortage of formulas

Read Time:1 Minute, 28 Second

President Joe Biden used the Defense Manufacturing Act to speed up the production of infant formula, and allowed flights to import supplies from abroad.

He is facing increasing political pressure due to the internal deficit caused by the closure of the country’s largest formula factory. Ordering the Defense Manufacturing Act requires formula manufacturers to fulfill these orders earlier than other customers.

Biden also allows the Department of Defense to use commercial aircraft to overseas formulas that meet federal standards in the U.S., in what the White House calls “Operation Fly Formula”.

The announcement came after the Office of Food and Drug Administration said the agency was streamlining the review process to make it easier for foreign manufacturers to supply more formulas to the United States. Regulators also said Monday that they have reached a deal that allows Abbott Nutrition to restart. its plant in Sturgis, Michigan, the nation’s largest formula plant, which has been closed since February due to pollution problems.

The company should review its safety protocols and procedures before resuming production.
