In what could be a life-saving move, Nestle is flying in baby formula supplies to the U.S. from Europe to alleviate the shortage.
Meanwhile, the FDA is announcing other plans to ease the nationwide formula shortage by easing some restrictions on which manufacturers can sell infant formula in the U.S.
“Our new guidance streamlines the ability for companies, including those that do not normally sell infant formula in this country, to make products available to the U.S. market.“
“We are focused on getting as much product as possible on store shelves,” said Frank Yiannas, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for food policy and response.
“And we won’t rest until the infant formula market gets back to normal.”
