Michigan Abbott plant restarts production of Similac baby formula
West Virginia AG: FDA is partly to blame for baby formula shortage
Attorney General Patrick Morrisey argues the FDA’s regulations make it difficult for new formula manufacturers to enter the marketplace.
Abbott Nutrition announce this week that it is restarting production of Similac baby formula at its troubled plant in Sturgis, Michigan, which was shut down earlier this year and contributed to a nationwide shortage of infant formula.
The company, which is the largest producer of baby formula in the US, said that it could take up to six weeks for Similac to hit hte shelves.
"We know that the nationwide infant formula shortage has been difficult for the families we serve, and while restarting Similac production in Michigan is an important milestone, we won’t rest until this product is back on shelves," Abbott Nutrition CEO Robert Ford said in a statement.
