Biden Invokes Defense Production Act to Stem Baby Formula Shortage

The administration announced it’ll use the 1950 law to increase formula production and authorize Pentagon contracts with commercial aircraft to import from overseas.

President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday that he’s invoking the Defense Production Act to increase supply of baby formula amid a nationwide shortage prompted by a recall after a bacterial contamination and supply chain issues.

Biden is employing similar strategies used to combat the coronavirus pandemic to now boost formula supply as supermarket shelves remain largely unstocked. He’s using the 1950 law, which allows the government to direct domestic manufacturing and production, to address the shortage.
