ZEUS 24 Newsline — US President Joe Biden yesterday activated the Defense Production Act for the growing baby formula shortage.
The executive power, notably used during the Trump administration to manufacture ventilators during the height of the covid pandemic, is intended to hasten production of infant formula.
Biden also commissioned special military flights to import baby formula from overseas trade partners.
This latest action comes as the US leader sees growing political criticism amongst a severe domestic shortfall.
The shortage has been caused by the safety-related closure of the country’s largest formula manufacturing plant.
