It appears that someone finally woke up our 79-year-old declining President from one of his long naps. Joe Biden should finally understand that a large baby formula production plant, Abbott Nutrition, was taken offline following its nationwide recall on February 17th.
He must have been reminded that our nation has been experiencing considerable disruptions in getting products due to supply chain issues. Why he might have asked, well China has been slowly reopening following months of re-closing their production cities over COVID concerns.
In a sign of incompetence and disconnect with the American populous, from their Ivory Tower in Washington D.C., the Biden administration went absent as the shortage of baby formula was reported around the country. Their silence led to their constituent’s voices and social media chatter to anger as the administration did not lay out its plan to resolve the issue.
This was frustrating for the millions of Americans who knew it was the administration’s policies that created the issue in the first place.
As with COVID, once the news concerning the shortages became widespread, there appears to have been a run on certain stores by anxious parents. In a panic, they bought up as much formula as possible, before stores could put limits in place. This further stressed-out parents who were already having difficulty finding the formula for their children.

Finally, it was reported that the Food and Drug Administration was streamlining its review process to make it easier for foreign manufacturers to begin shipping more formulas to the U.S. Regulators.
The FDA also announced that they’d reached a deal to allow Abbott to restart its Sturgis, Michigan, plant, the nation’s largest formula plant, which has been closed due to contamination issues. The company must overhaul its safety protocols and procedures before re-opening.
Abbot said it will take eight to ten weeks, after getting FDS approval to re-open, before new products begin arriving in stores.
On Thursday, the White House announced on their website, “Biden Administration Approves First Operation Fly Formula Mission”.
“The Secretary of Defense ordered today the first flights supporting Operation Fly Formula. Due to the urgency of the situation, these flights will comprise U.S. military aircraft and will depart Ramstein Air Base in Germany this weekend,” White House Communications Director Kate Berner said on Twitter.
“The flights will transport 132 pallets of Nestlé Health Science Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior formula to Indianapolis, IN. These formulas have been prioritized because they serve a critical medical purpose and are in short supply in the US because of the plant closure,” Berner wrote.
The first shipments of infant formula from Europe to address a critical shortage in the United States should begin arriving this weekend, President Joe Biden said on Friday.
I’ve got an update on Operation Fly Formula: We’re flying in the first shipment over the weekend.
That means up to 1.5 million bottles of safe Nestlé infant formula will be coming to U.S. shelves as soon as possible. https://t.co/MGHNZH92T1

We can expect to see Operation Fly Formula mentioned in campaign commercials and press releases as we get closer to November.
The left is always hoping the American voter’s attention spans have remained short.
If so, they will once again run a few positive stories in front of them, over and over again, hoping they forget all of their politician’s mistakes. If successful their message will bring their traditional democratic voters back to the polls, to pull the lever for their party once again.
This is how mayors in collapsing cities like Baltimore can get re-elected several times.
They run commercials highlighting a few new businesses that opened, remind them that Republicans are all racist, and offer additional free money and services for them, but only if they remain in office.
Unfortunately, it seems to work every time in urban areas.
