Formula shortage ‘shows you how broken this administration is’

During FNC’s “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) criticized the Biden administration over the shortage of infant formula in the United States.

After outlining its bipartisan legislation to help prevent future supply chain problems, Blackburn said the shortage, which the White House declined to call a “crisis,” “shows you how broken this administration is.” . She argued that the White House Biden knew there would be a shortage of formula in October 2021 after ordering the plant to close due to contamination concerns.

“It should never have happened,” Blackburn said. “The White House was aware of this issue in October. The FDA did not work with Abbott [Nutrition] in a productive way to reopen this file. And thank goodness Abbott has set up a 1-800 number that your viewers can take down from my social media so parents and caregivers can call and get the formula they need.

The Republican senator from Tennessee concluded, “You know, that shows you how broken this administration is with this infant formula crisis.”
