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”.
I am taking two new steps to increase the amount of baby formula:
– Application of the Law on Defense Production to increase domestic production
– Launch of Operation Fly Formula to use federal aircraft for Formula flights from abroad
We make sure that the safe formula reaches everyone who needs it. pic.twitter.com/lnkxsaCY6T

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.
