As Latter-day Saints, we often see the political news of the day through the lens of how it will affect families and children. One massive story that has somehow gone without major national notice is a troubling shortage of baby formula.
WebMD has the story here:
Supply chain issues have hit all sectors of the economy. Baby formula has also been hit by a major recall from one of the country’s leading makers of baby formula. But few parts of the economy so directly affect the health and well-being of our most vulnerable. Today, approximately 31% of stores that usually carry baby formula, do not have it in stock.
This crisis suggests direct and immediate action be taken to protect so many of our nation’s babies that rely on formula.
