Congressman Posey's Statement on the Infant Formula Shortage


Washington, May 19, 2022 - Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) released the following statement regarding the infant formula shortage:

“Last night the House voted on legislation pertaining to the ongoing baby formula shortage in areas across the United States. For months the Administration and the FDA have known about the possibility of a serious baby formula shortage, but very little was done to prepare for it. I support fixing this problem, and voted for a bill to address the needs of those who depend on the WIC program for baby formula. I opposed legislation to give the FDA even more funding above the increase already authorized this year, without a clear and actionable plan.

I have been a cosponsor of legislation to use the Defense Production Act to address this baby formula shortage, introduced bipartisan legislation to improve and enhance our critical supply chain issues, and supported efforts to increase manufacturing here in the United States.  No amount of money can replace competent leadership and this Administration should start stepping up to meet challenges head-on or get out of the way.”
