Governor Glenn Youngkin Statement on Baby Formula Shortage

RICHMOND, VA –  Today, Governor Glenn Youngkin made the following statement on the nationwide baby formula shortage:

"My administration remains engaged with industry leaders on their production capabilities, and the Virginia Department of Heath is working to ensure that there are adequate supplies of baby formula statewide. Additionally, my administration has asked the FDA to utilize all resources to get the U.S. plant back into production as quickly as possible. Simply put, acquiring baby formula shouldn't be a challenge in the United States," said Governor Glenn Youngkin.
