Earlier this month a National Baby Formula shortage in the USA forced retailers to impose purchasing limits on baby formula as low stock supplies sent parents into a panic.

As a result of increasing pressure on the Biden administration, the US government has now announced its plan to further address the shortages.

The US government has secured 1.25 million cans of baby formula from Australia with the stock set to be flown into the country.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Friday that there will be enough formula to fill 27.5 million 8-ounce bottles, in an effort to fill the gap in demand.

In a tweet Biden said:

“I’ve got more good news: 27.5 million bottles of safe infant formula manufactured by Bubs Australia are coming to the United States.”

Of the 1.25 million cans allotted for distribution to the US much of the product is already in stock, with more being produced according to the FDA.

Biden came under fire amid ongoing shortages, with many claiming that his administration did not do enough to combat the crisis in its early stages.

While the administration’s plan has been announced, no date has been confirmed as to when the stock of formula will be flown to the US.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed on Thursday that several additional flights were ‘in the works.’

Two shipments have already been flown into the US from Europe under Biden’s ‘Operation Fly Formula,” with one of the shipments arriving at the Dulles International Airport on Wednesday. The two European shipments are reported to have bought in a total of around 1.5 million 8-ounce bottles of formula into the US.

Biden has also invoked the Defence Production Act which forces suppliers to prioritise the production of infant formula before fulfilling other contracts. This follows the closure of the nation’s biggest baby formula manufacturer, Abbott Laboratories, which was forced to close its Michigan plant over bacterial contamination concerns.

The US Federal Trade Commission announced earlier this week that an inquiry has been launched into the infant formula shortages.
