House of Representatives to vote on bill to address baby formula shortage

1 min read

The US House of Representatives plans to vote on a bill aimed at alleviating the baby formula shortage on Wednesday.

The $28 million Access to Baby Formula Act would allow beneficiaries of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) to apply vouchers to any type of baby formula.

It would also earmark funds towards increasing the US Food and Drug Administration’s workforce focused on formula issues to ensure fraudulent products don’t end up on store shelves.
