President Biden Announces First Two Infant Formula Defense Production Act Authorizations

Washington, DC...The President is announcing the first two Defense Production Act (DPA) authorizations for infant formula. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra authorized the first two infant formula priority orders today. The two infant formula manufacturers can now begin to add legally binding language to their orders with suppliers that will give them priority over other customers. Last week, the President invoked the DPA to ensure that manufacturers have the necessary ingredients to make safe, health infant formula here at home.





Earlier today, the President announced the second Operation Fly Formula flight had been sourced for later this week. The flight will transport 114 pallets of Gerber Good Start® Extensive HA infant formula. This is the remainder of the equivalent of up to 1.5 million 8-ounce bottles of three formulas—Alfamino® Infant, Alfamino® Junior, and Gerber Good Start® Extensive HA—all of which are hypoallergenic formulas for children with cow’s milk protein allergy. The first tranche of this shipment arrived in the United States on DOD aircraft earlier today. These formulas have been prioritized because they serve a critical medical purpose and are in short supply in the United States because of the Abbott Sturgis plant closure.

Today’s infant formula priority orders are:

Abbott Nutrition can now receive priority orders of raw materials like sugar and corn syrup for infant formula. Constraints in global supply chain for these materials mean that Abbott’s allotment/allocation of these materials have been limited to 75 percent of its normal amount. By allowing Abbott to receive its full allotment of needed raw materials, it will be able to quickly increase production by one third over where it stands today.
Reckitt (which owns Mead-Johnson) can now receive priority orders of consumables like single-use products like filters necessary to generate certain oils needed to produce infant formula. This will also allow Reckitt facilities to operate at maximum capacity.
The Biden-Harris Administration will continue to identify opportunities to invoke the Defense Production Act and further increase infant formula production to maximum capacity. The Biden-Harris Administration has been working around the clock to increase production of infant formula and keep store shelves stocked during the Abbott Nutrition voluntary recall.

Do you remember when we were a sovereign nation, the border was under control, gas prices were ridiculously low compared to now, Mass Shootings we're 400 % less then today, violent crime, rapes, Shootings we're way below today's numbers, there was no inflation, our Allies respected us, our adversaries feared us, no supply chain crisis, baby food was available, remember when Trump created Operation Warp Speed and the entire left said impossible it would take 5 years, remember when there were only 400,000 dead Americans and under Biden it's over ONE MILLION Americans DEAD because he and his VP bad mouthed the Three Vaccines Trump gave him? Remember when there was Peace in the Middle East, other countries entering into peace agreements with Israel, Russia stayed inside their own border, the military, law enforcement respected the POTUS, Remember when teachers taught 5 year old students reading writing and arithmetic instead of questioning their sex, remember when politicians worked for American citizens instead of making us last, But all of that was wayyyy back (like 16 months ago) before president dementia and vice president Whore took over.

    It's the FDA.
    Whenever there's a contamination, the entire food processing plant shuts down.
    Whether it's meat, produce, dairy, or baby formula.
    Lawyers rule the world. We live in a litigation society. It's always somebody else's fault.
    When it comes to babies, and baby formula. I think responsibility for protecting every young life is important.
    That statement is going to bring out the ProLife and ProChoice comments, but its a different topic.

            Absolutely it is. They are the majority in all departments of our government. Every action/decision they have made has been a *bleep* show. Give me examples of wins from this incompetent administration? I’ll wait….
