"American families are struggling. Along with the 40-year record high inflation, spiking food prices and record high gas prices, parents are now faced with a new crisis: a shortage of baby formula," said Rep. McKinley.
"There is no question, we must put families first. We need answers from the FDA about their failure to act urgently and provide basic transparency surrounding the production of baby formula before it became a crisis impacting families," said Rep. McKinley.
