The Biden administration announced new steps to address the baby formula shortage while noting there were several key factors to be looked at.

In an attempt to fix this problem, the administration suggested getting more formula to store shelves quicker, cutting down on price gouging and increasing supply through increased imports. This comes as supply chain issues continue to contribute to the ongoing baby formula shortage.

“We’re going to work with manufacturers, we’re going to import more to expedite this as soon as possible,” said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. 

President Joe Biden spoke to Walmart and Target CEO’s about ways to boost supplies. The Netherlands, Ireland and Chile are now identified as potential sources for more formula.

“We are seeing increases over the last couple of weeks but more needs to be done,” voiced Jen Psaki.

With the out of stock rate for baby formula in the US rising above 40 percent, parents are becoming desperate as things persists.
