Senator Cruz Calls on President Biden to Address Baby Formula Shortage
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has written a letter to President Joe Biden calling on his administration to address the baby formula shortage that is hurting Texas and other states around the country.
Senator Cruz wrote:
Given the important role that formula plays in the health and nutrition of our nation’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens, I would ask you to direct the Food and Drug Administration to take swift action to examine how producers of formula can safely reopen and expand their manufacturing facilities to ensure America is able to produce an abundant supply of formula. Your administration needs to act quickly to protect our nation’s children and help the thousands of American families who are struggling to access a basic need for their children.
About the letter, Senator Cruz said:
“Texas families are struggling because of our massive baby formula shortage. This is unacceptable, and I’m calling on President Biden and his Food and Drug Administration to do whatever it takes to address this crisis for Texans – immediately and with real urgency.”
