There is still a baby formula shortage here in the United States — 20% of formula products were out of stock in the six weeks leading up to July 24, according to data collected by Information Resources, Inc. Here’s White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the subject:

“So as you know, this is a priority for us. We understand what families are going through — caregivers, moms, and dads, you know, grandparents. And…we have done the work and will continue to do the work to make sure that families have safe baby formula so that they can feed their kids. This continues to be a priority for us. This has not gone away. And we do understand that there’s a lot more work to do. But we want families to know and understand this is an administration that cares about them, that cares about the safety of their children. And we’re going to continue to do the work.”
