Biden invokes Defense Production Act to increase supply of U.S. infant formula


President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday that he was invoking the Defense Production Act to speed up the manufacturing of U.S.-made infant formula, as well as directing government agencies to use the Defense Department’s commercial aircraft to pick up products from overseas.

The DPA requires suppliers to send necessary resources to infant formula suppliers before other customers who have requested the goods. The White House also announced “Operation Fly Formula” to speed up imports. The president has asked the Department of Health and Human Services and the Agriculture Department to use Defense commercial aircraft to pick up U.S.-approved, overseas infant formula “so it can get to store shelves faster.”
