So this week’s hot topic has been the baby formula shortage. We first heard whispers of this after Abbott Nutrition, which accounts for roughly 40 percent of the market, issued a recall in February. A couple of weeks ago, an astute listener called into this station (NewsTalkSTL) to relate that his son had just encountered a woman at Wal-Mart who’d driven 78 miles to find the baby formula she needed for her child.
The Biden administration’s response has been less than reassuring, first shrugging as to who the point person is on the issue, then pointing the finger at consumers for hoarding while simultaneously shipping pallets of formula to the border for use in immigrant holding centers.
