Press Release: Simpson Tells Biden Administration to Act on Baby Formula Shortage

By • May 15, 2022

The following press release was sent out by Congressman Mike Simpson. Note: Press releases sent out by elected officials do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch.

Washington, D.C. – Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson joined 115 of his House Colleagues in urging President Biden and FDA Commissioner Robert Califf to take immediate action on the nationwide shortage of baby formula which has reached crisis levels in recent weeks.

“This baby formula shortage is a serious health and safety concern for American families.  It’s time the Biden Administration step up to help parents of young children in this time of critical need,” said Simpson.  “Americans are already hurting from the worst inflation rates in over 40 years as well as ongoing supply chain issues, but this issue is especially urgent—President Biden must act now.”

The letter notes that parents are struggling to keep up with this shortage exacerbated by historic inflation, supply chain shortages, recent formula recalls, and purchase limits set by several store chains.  The impact this shortage may have on parents who participate in public benefits, such as WIC, and rely on the program’s supply of baby formula for their infant’s nutritional needs is also a growing concern.

The letter asks President Biden and Commissioner Califf a series of questions to prompt swift action and provide solutions to the American families who urgently need them.

  1. Let’s see:
    Budget?
    Border?
    Ukraine?
    Military?
    January 6th prisoners?
    Inflation?
    Constitution?
    Prosecution of BLM?
    Gun rights?
    States rights?

    Vote for Bryan Smith Tuesday, do not vote for mr pablum.

  2. It would be really nice to see solutions at the local level.
    Why must we always ask the federal government to intervene?
    It is obvious they don’t know the ass from their elbow!!!!

  3. The problem here is that Biden has already acted! Biden has emboldened the FDA–already notorious for its role in backing Fauci to suppress valid covid treatments and doing hurry-up deals with EUAs and “approvals” of some highly questionable products–so that now it is holding up baby formula through a policy of requiring plant inspections (particularly in the case of Abbott, which had a recall) and then failing to provide the means to get those inspections done. The FDA appears to be playing this game so that Gates can get his “new and improved” product to market. (Any mother who knows Gates’s track record with vaccines and experimental drugs would not want a Gates formula within a mile of her child!)

  4. We will again see the idiot Idahoans reelect their incumbent because their Tv told them to do so.

  5. This is another politically inexpensive gesture by Simpson to boost his “conservative” credentials. Of course he’ll criticize Biden on this….it’s EASY and costs nothing.
    Like the list above asks:
    Budget?
    Border?
    Ukraine?
    Military?
    January 6th prisoners?
    Inflation?
    Constitution?
    Prosecution of BLM?
    Gun rights?
    States rights?

    Where is Simpson on these?
    He avoids or actually takes an opposing stand on them, contrary to what we need. The RINO agenda is a long term holding action while the Klaus Schwabs move their death blows into striking range of our heartlands.
