To know the real reason behind the nationwide shortage of baby formula, the head of the FDA plans to inspect a baby formula factory linked to the nationwide shortage.
FDA Commissioner Robert Califf is set to visit Abbott Nutrition’s Michigan plant, the largest in the U.S., which the FDA shut down in February due to contamination.
Sources said Califf had long planned to visit the Michigan plans, but certain factors stopped him from doing it.
According to reports, the Energy and Commerce subcommittee members will also hear from three infant formula makers, including a top executive from Abbott.
To address the shortage of baby formula, Abbott and the have reached an agreement to reopen the plant next week.
