Emmer said, “Again, the American people are being forced to pay the price for the Biden Administration’s supply chain failures. Formula isn’t a luxury, it’s an absolute necessity and the sole source of nutrition for nearly a fifth of our nation’s infants.”
“No parent should have to ration formula to feed their child. President Biden owes us a plan to immediately address this crisis.” Emmer concluded.
Among his efforts to increase formula supplies, Congressman Emmer has:
- Co-signed a letter led by Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) to President Biden and Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Robert Califf asking a variety of questions, including details on the supply on formula, the recall of certain formulas, and whether the Administration has performed outreach to pediatric hospitals;
- Co-signed a letter led by Representative Pete Stauber (MN-08) to FDA Commissioner Califf asking when the FDA was initially aware of the formula shortage and what steps they have taken to address it.
