Many people were blaming President Biden for the baby formula crisis that has been hurting America. I guess this is why today, we are actually seeing some desperate measures being taking place. Its good to know that Biden does not want the babies to go hungry, although the American people cannot afford to pay rent, buy food, or get gas. I feel at this point its best that we actually get formula to the families that need it. Now the question is, will we be able to stop those people, who are buying more than they need not leaving enough for other families.

As the Biden administration works to alleviate the nationwide infant formula shortage, the first batch of imported baby formula under “Operation Fly Formula” landed in the United States on Sunday. From Germany’s Ramstein Air Base to Indiana, military planes brought a shipment of three formula brands, the equivalent of up to half a million 8-ounce bottles. Nestlé Health Science Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior, as well as Gerber Good Start Extensive HA, were included in the shipment, all of which are hypoallergenic formulas for children who are allergic to cow’s milk protein.

“Additional flights will be announced in the coming days,” the Department of Agriculture said on Saturday. “Transporting this goods from Europe to the United States usually takes two weeks. We were able to cut it down to around three days thanks to Operation Fly Formula “Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House communications secretary, stated. This is the first of several planeloads of foreign formula set to arrive in the United States in the coming weeks.

Last week, Biden signed legislation to improve low-income families’ access to baby formula. During times of crisis, the Access to Baby Formula Act of 2022 assures that families can use benefits from the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, generally known as WIC, to buy formula outside of what is normally authorized for the program. WIC purchases over half of all newborn formula in the United States, with 1.2 million infants receiving formula under the program.
