US President Joe Biden on Wednesday announced the third series of powdered milk distribution for babies as part of Operation Fly Formula; More than 130 tons of product is to come from Great Britain. This is a reflection of the crisis in the availability of milk for babies in American stores.
Biden said in a statement that United Airlines would provide British condoms milk free of charge to the United States over the next three weeks. The volume of production is enough to produce 3.7 million milk.
The third initiative of the Fly Formula measure is the import of powdered milk from abroad, which was organized by the Biden administration in response to shortages in the United States. On Friday, the Australian milk producer announced it would ship 27 million services to the United States.
On Wednesday, Biden will meet with representatives of US manufacturers and his office to work out a plan to increase product availability. The crisis has erupted since the closure of the Abbott factory, America’s largest powder milk producer. In addition, restrictions on baby food imports from abroad contributed to the difficulties.
According to data cited by the Washington Post, the volume of this product filling in stores has dropped by 76 percent. Nationwide, store shelves in some parts of the United States are only 30 percent full.
