Florida Representative Kat Cammack just released images of full pallets of baby formula in the midst of a severe shortage.
3 main brands have recalled their products after a salmonella scare and parents can’t get their hands on the baby food they need. One Texas mom, Emily Stanley, says she had to take the day off and drive over an hour in order to feed her child. ABC reports that it could be up to 10 weeks before the key Abbott Laboratories location in Sturges, Michigan can get formula back on the shelves.
Rep Kat Cammack compels her constituents to “demand that the administration take action on putting the baby formula back on the shelves for American kids.”
“I don’t know about you, but if I am a mother anywhere, anytime in America, and I go to my local Walmart or Target or Publix or Safeway or Kroger or wherever it may be that you shop and you are seeing their shelves and you are seeing signs that you are not able to get baby formula. And then you see the American government sending, by the pallet, thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border, that would make my blood boil.”
The full pallets were labeled with a sheet that says “do not take,” and contained large quantities of the formula.
The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula.
The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce.

Conservative commentator Candice Owens contends that Bill Gates’ recent investment in synthetic breast milk may be a little convenient.
Doesn’t Bill Gates just have the best luck? Just like with the COVID vaccine— he makes an investment, and then suddenly there is a pandemic or shortage and everyone must line up for his product.
Of course he’s invested in lab produced breast milk! https://t.co/1OzFBFHezy

Bill Gates is leading a venture with BIOMILQ to produce lab-grown synthetic breast milk. It works in a very similar way to lab-grown meat. Scientists are working to nurture human-milk producing cells that can reliably provide suitable milk. The idea that Gates is behind the shortages is a little far-fetched however, seeing as his venture is still around 3 to 5 years away from hitting the market.
Baby formula at the border however? That’s an issue we need to get to the bottom of, and fast!
