Baby formula boss warns crisis will last ALL YEAR as Biden claims it will be eased in weeks and only 'mind reader' could see it coming - despite shortages beginning last July

Attachment Attached File


The head of one of the four companies that control 90 percent of the U.S. market for baby formula has warned that the shortages nationwide could last until the end of the year, as President 's critics mocked his claim that 'only a mind reader' could have predicted the current crisis.

On Friday CEO of formula giant Perrigo Murray Kessler, told Reuters he expects shortages and heightened demand to last for the 'balance of the year.'

Kessler said their factories in Ohio and Vermont are running at 115 percent capacity, to compensate for Chicago-based Abbott's shutdown - but added that supplies would remain erratic for the remainder of 2022.

'We have stepped up and are killing ourselves to do everything we can,' Kessler said.

Meanwhile President Biden has sparked fury after claiming that the issue could be sorted within weeks - the same as what the FDA has previously said - without offering further unique detail on how he plans to tackle the issue.

He was also accused of being glib after telling reporters Friday that he'd have needed psychic powers to predict the crisis, despite alarm bells sounding as far back as summer 2021.

The nationwide 'out of stock' level has been consistently above 10 percent since August, and in January this year The Wall Street Journal warned of an impending problem.

Brian Deese, Director of the National Economic Council, said on Friday morning that the had been urging states to take action to combat the issue in February - after the shortage was exacerbated by a February 17 recall of some products produced by Abbott Laboratories, and a shutdown of one of their plants.

'We actually gave states the guidance on using flexibility the day after this recall happened in February,' he told 's Kaitlin Collins.

Yet Biden on Friday insisted no one could have predicted the crisis, which has seen desperate parents go from store to store, trying to find the urgently-needed formula.

Two. More. Weeks.

The CEO’s end of the year timestamp is a feeble attempt to give false assurances. They have no idea when supply will return to ‘normal’

When CEOs announce ‘rest of the year’ or ‘multiple quarter recovery’, they don’t have a fucking clue.

Look at how people hoard things they don't strictly need when there might be a shortage.  Baby formula market is going to be ridiculous for the next several months just based on that.  People are really desperate, this'll make the usual 22LR shortage look like child's play.

Toss in Biden claiming it'll be sorted out in a few weeks...

Anything Biden tries to fix, is likely to just keep getting worse.

Biden's a dementia ridden puppet but any time his administration is saying they're going to "fix" anything they are lying to you and plan on making it worse.

ETA: Why do you think they went through all the trouble of installing a dementia ridden puppet? They could have put any true believer in his place and they'd have pushed all the same things. They needed a fall guy. Someone who wasn't worried about his legacy. Someone so far gone they don't care if they get the blame for the downfall of this country.

I no longer have any words to describe how sickeningly toxic this administration is for our country.

It's ok though because Biden is sending pallets of formula to the border so at least the illegals can feed their kids.  That's a pretty legit mega-villian plan right there.  Procure as much formula as possible for illegals while starving the babies of American citizens.  All those little illegals are going to be voters in a year or two so each brown baby life matters.

As someone with a baby on the way....does anyone know the conversion rate of .22LR to baby formula?

I'm all for capitalism, but the scalper mentality is getting out of hand. Feels like shit tier people will neckbeard anything these days.

I know, I know, if I don't like it I can just start my own baby formula company...I'll go be poor somewhere else.

For many people theres not. Supply issues are extremely common and there are grave yards full of dead babbies that starved before there was formula.

FFS...

Moms who have PCOS, mastectomies, or have to work full time job and aren't able to pump at work, people who adopted, moms who had their supply interupted by an emergecy or medical prodecure and their supply didn't come back, premature babies who need to eat before milk comes in, babies with certain alleries, the list goes on and on.

Not everyone has the luxury of breastfeeding. Infant mortality rates were 10 times higher before formula existed.
