E&C Announces Oversight Hearing on Infant Formula Shortages on May 25
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) announced today that the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Wednesday, May 25, on infant formula shortages.
“The nationwide infant formula shortages are increasingly alarming and demand Congress’ immediate attention,” Pallone said. “Ensuring the safety and well-being of our nation’s children, including safe and nutritious formula, is one of our most important collective responsibilities. I commend the Biden Administration and the Food and Drug Administration’s recent actions to increase supply of infant formula and stand ready to work together until this shortage is resolved. The focus of this hearing will be on better understanding the causes of the shortage, what has been done to increase production and supply thus far, and what more still needs to be done to ensure access to safe formula across the nation.”
Additional details will be announced the week before the hearing.
