Baby Formula Maker Says Shipping Millions of Cans From Another Country
Abbott Laboratories has flown millions of baby formula cans to the United States to help deal with shortages, the company said on May 13.
“We know that the recall has worsened the industry-wide infant formula shortage, and we have been working to get as much product into the hands of parents as we can,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
Millions of cans of infant formula powder have already been flown from Abbott’s facility in Cootehill, Ireland, according to the company.
That facility is registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Few baby formula containers sold in the United States are from overseas, but the Biden administration announced this week that part of its plan to increase supply is to ease restrictions on imports, though it declined to share details.
