The Biden Administration announced on Monday that it would start easing some of the processes required to import baby formula into the U.S. in order to counter a domestic supply shortage that has wiped about 40% of formula stock off of supermarket shelves.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration will be more flexible in approving foreign-manufactured infant formula for sale in the U.S. and “will prioritize review of applications that are most likely to be successful and will get the most formula to U.S. shelves as quickly as possible,” U.S. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters in a Monday briefing.
The FDA insists it is not reducing health and safety standards in order to expedite import approvals, but will be more lenient on other technical requirements, such as formatting on labels. The FDA says it will permit agents to apply discretion if a foreign manufacturer does not list its baby formula ingredients in the exact order prescribed by FDA regulations, for example.
The U.S. hopes that the temporary measures, which will last for the next six months, can help get the formula back in the hands of parents, and the bottles of babies.
