WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) released the following statement on the ongoing baby formula shortage families are facing across the country:

“I’ve been hearing from understandably frustrated parents across North Carolina who cannot find formula to feed their children. I understand these concerns and the Biden Administration must use every tool at their disposal to resolve this crisis, and Congress should step in to help where it can. We need to remove roadblocks, reduce regulatory burdens, and amend importation restrictions to immediately increase the production and supply of formula. The FDA has an obligation to provide clear answers to parents about the status of fixing the shortage. We must work in a bipartisan fashion to ensure that the world’s most prosperous country never faces this kind of unnecessary crisis again.”
