New York State Senators have penned a letter to Governor Kathy Hochel and the New York State Health Commissioner Mary T. Bassett urging them to take immediate action and to use the full power of the state to address the widespread baby formula shortages that are harming families all across the Empire State and Nation.
“No parent should have to live in fear of not being able to find the formula they need to feed their babies. This shortage and the inaction we have seen surrounding it, is absolutely unacceptable and it will take committed partners at every level to boost production. New York State must do all that it can to immediately clear any barriers to access, streamline the supply chain, and get healthy, affordable formula into the hands of families who need it,” said Senator Sue Serino.
Certain stores have now issued a limit on the number customers may buy during the National shortage in order for availability to everyone in need of baby formula.
