US military delivers baby formula from Germany to address shortage

The U.S. military will begin delivering shipments of baby formula to Indiana this weekend to address the nationwide shortage that has left parents scrambling.

The United States will fly 132 pallets of baby formula from Germany to Indianapolis just one day after President Joe Biden signed legislation that provides emergency funding to the Food and Drug Administration. The delivery is the first of two shipments of Operation Fly Formula, which will transport 246 pallets of baby formula, enough to fill 1.5 million eight-ounce bottles, according to the White House.

The first flights this weekend will deliver Nestle’s Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior formula, with shipments of Gerber Good Start Extensive HA formula expected “in the coming days,” officials said.

The worsening shortage of baby formula, the primary source of nutrition for many infants, particularly those who require specialty mixtures due to allergies or gastrointestinal conditions, has led to a 40% decrease in inventory nationwide, according to Datasembly.

One cause was a February recall of powdered formulas manufactured at Abbott Nutrition’s manufacturing plant in Sturgis, Michigan, where operations have paused. The FDA issued a recall after receiving reports of infections in four babies caused by Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria that were linked to the manufacturer.
