Of all things. Now we’re out of baby formula.
According to Fox News:
More than 100 House Republicans are calling on the Biden Administration and the Food and Drug Administration o immediately address the ongoing baby formula shortage that has left parents scrambling to feed their infants.
Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee led a letter with 106 GOP lawmakers to the White House and the FDA commissioner Robert M. Califf Wednesday seeking data on the nationwide shortages and demanding answers as to what the Administration is doing to address the empty store shelves.
“This issue is a matter of life and death, and it is time this administration treats it with the appropriate urgency it deserves,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter obtained first by Fox News Digital.
Parents across the nation have been panicked and desperate as supply disruptions and a massive safety recall by manufacturer Abbott have created widespread shortages. For the first week of May, the nationwide out-of-stock percentage for baby formula rose to 43%, according to Datasembly, which tracks product data for retailers. That’s up from 30% at the start of April.
