It feels like America is dancing on the edge of a razor. Thanks to the poor leadership from Biden and the Democrat party we are one step away from people starting to go hungry.
Due to Bidenflation and Democrat caused supply chain issues there is a shortage of baby formula that is forcing at least one United State retailer to start rationing.
In March of 2022, 29% of all baby formula products in the United States were out of stock. Walgreen’s has begun a rationing program only allowing three units per transaction.
“Due to increased demand and various supplier challenges, infant and toddler formulas are seeing constraint across the country,” a Walgreens spokesperson told NPR. “We continue to work diligently with our supplier partners to best meet customer demands.”
Another problem is the health care company Abbott was forced to recall their powered baby formula products over concerns they were contaminated with bacteria.
The company said none of the distributed products — including Similac, Alimentum and EleCare powder formulas — tested positive for the bacteria. However, it did find evidence of Cronobacter sakazakii in non-product contact areas of its Sturgis, Mich., manufacturing facility.
Abbott later expanded the recall after learning of the death of an infant who had consumed Similac PM 60/40 and tested positive for Cronobacter sakazakii, but it said the cause of the infection had not been determined.
Families are beginning to panic and parents that need government assistance are bearing the brunt.
“I was crying for three straight hours wondering how I was going to feed my baby,” one Orchard Park mother told WGRZ.
“I went to BJ’s. I went to Target. I went to Walmart and I went to Tops. All those four stores were completely out. I checked online the Parent Choice that I get for our son is not available,” Samantha Klaja, a Hamburg mom said.
“You can get a store brand of formula for $19.99, but the problem is the store brand is not available. So you have to go buy the actual brand. I use Parent’s Choice of Walmart for $19.99, but it’s not available. You can’t find any find of store brand anywhere. So, you have to buy this $45 brand formula,” Klaja said.
