PORTLAND, OR - MAY 12: Katie Wussler, a program coordinator at Mother & Child Education Center, throws away recalled Similac baby formula, which the company would not replace or reimburse because the donated supplies did not come with a receipt, on May 12, 2022 in Portland, Oregon. More than 60 percent of Mother & Childs formula supply was affected by the recall, and like many similar non-profits they are struggling to meet increased demand from mothers who are unable to find or afford formula in stores. Executive Director Maura White said she's had to turn away mothers looking for formula about three times a week since the recall was announced. (Photo by Nathan Howard/Getty Images)

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is offering formula manufacturers and retailers transportation and logistics support to ease the nationwide shortage of baby formula. This comes as the administration works to bring the largest domestic plant back on line after it was shut down early this year due to safety issues. The White House says it is working with all major formula producers to boost production, including reaching out to their suppliers to encourage them to prioritize production and delivery of formula ingredients. The Biden administration has come under intense pressure over the last week to do more to ease the shortage of formula that has forced parents of infants to go to significant lengths to feed their children.
