Baby Formula Makers Ship Products to Restock US Shelves

Baby Formula Makers Ship Products to Restock US Shelves

Tuesday, 31 May 2022 02:10 PM EDT

Global companies that make baby formula are bringing products into the United States after the country's health regulator relaxed its import policy to address a nationwide shortage partly triggered by Abbott Laboratories' manufacturing plant in Michigan recalling some products in February.

Importers include Neocate maker Danone SA, while New Zealand's dairy giants Fonterra and a2 Milk have submitted applications to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for supplying baby formula to the United States.

Once the products arrive in the country and receive a sign-off from the FDA, the manufacturers distribute them through their existing supply chains and cater to unfulfilled orders, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said.

Here's a list of companies that are bringing in baby formula to the U.S. market in the wake of the crisis:

May 27 -- Bubs Australia Ltd. -- Plans to ship at least 1.25 million cans of several varieties of its formula.

May 26 -- Danone SA -- Has doubled shipments of its formula, with about 500,000 additional cans to be sent to the U.S.

May 22 -- Nestle SA -- Has been flying supplies from the Netherlands and Switzerland and delivered 132 pallets of its Health Science Alfamino and Alfamino Jr. infant formulas Another 114 pallets of Gerber Good Start Extensive HA formula set to arrive in the coming days.

May 24 -- Kendal Nutricare -- About 2 million cans of infant formula expected to reach U.S. store shelves beginning in June, with 40,000 cans in stock for immediate dispatch.

May 16 -- Reckitt Benckiser -- Has boosted baby formula production by about 30% and expediting the approval of some products made at a facility in Mexico.
