Some are calling the Formula Shortage a Starvation Crisis Event

Rev 6:6 NAS “And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.”

Important Takeaways:

  • US Infant Formula Shortage a Serious Crisis for Many Families: ‘This Is Starvation Level Event Hitting the US’
  • Months of spot shortages at pharmacies and supermarkets have been intensified by the recall at Abbott Nutrition, which was forced to shutter its largest U.S. formula manufacturing plant in February due to contamination concerns.
  • The baby formula shortage has also gained attention on social media. One user wrote, “Formula shortage is a disaster. No, moms can’t make more milk. Some kids can’t latch. There are many issues at work. This is starvation level event hitting the U.S. And no one seems to care.”
  • For now, pediatricians and health workers are urging parents who can’t find formula to contact food banks or doctor’s offices. They warn against watering down formula to stretch supplies or using online “Do It Yourself” recipes.
  • Nationwide about 40% of large retail stores are out of stock, up from 31% in mid-April, according to Datasembly, a data analytics firm. More than half of U.S. states are seeing out-of-stock rates between 40% and 50%, according to the firm, which collects data from 11,000 locations.
  • Baby formula is particularly vulnerable to disruptions because just a handful of companies account for almost the entire U.S. supply. The shortages are especially dangerous for infants who require specialty formulas due to food allergies, digestive problems, and other conditions.
