How Did We End Up Having a Baby Formula Shortage?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Jeff Thompson

The United States is now facing a severe baby formula shortage and all the data only points to things getting worse. As of early April, approximately 30% of popular infant formula was out of stock at stores across the nation. CVS, Target, and Walgreens were some of the more noteworthy stores that began to ration baby food out at that time. This comes at a time shortly after Georgia has declared a state of emergency due to lack of supplies and Washington DC has began to advocate for the rationing of food.

Now? Now, the data indicates that 40% of popular infant formula brands are out of stock throughout America. What will that percentage be next month?

Much of this has been caused by the recall at Abbott.

Abbott is the largest supplier of infant formula in America. Approximately three months ago, four infants became ill, two of which, sadly, passed away. The FDA and the CDC stepped in, claiming that Abbott’s Michigan facility needed to shut down. Initially, the FDA said that they found unsanitary facility practices at the Abbott facility. Anybody who has ever talked with anyone who has tried to produce and process their own livestock for sale understands how asinine FDA rulings of “unsanitary” can be.

Last month, the FDA and CDC stated that the bacterial strain that made the four babies sick didn’t match the strain of bacteria that was found at the Abbott facility. Despite this, the plant remained closed. There is currently no explanation as to how the contamination occurred.

(Here’s a link worth exploring. “Sabotage operations.”)

Now, because of the shortage, the FDA is saying that the Michigan Abbott facility can reopen. According to the company, it will take them approximately 10 weeks before formula once more begins to show up on store shelves across America.

Headlines about the shortage are popping up in media across the nation.

The Guardian recently published a piece titled, ‘It’s a nightmare’: baby formula shortage leaves US parents desperate. Other media outlets have began to publish articles along the lines of ‘How to Feed Your Baby When There’s No Infant Formula.’

As of April, Texas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Iowa, and Missouri were hit the hardest by the shortage of infant formula, experiencing a 50% reduction in infant formula.

Let them drink Biomilq.

A new formula alternative should be available on the market within the next 3-5 years, though – Biomilq – the world’s first lab-grown breast milk.

This Durham, North Carolina company was founded in 2019, and has recently acquired hefty financing from Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Bill Gates’ investment firm that is predominantly focused on tackling “climate change.” Other partners with Breakthrough Energy Ventures include Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Branson, Masayoshi Son, Jack Ma, Michael Bloomberg, and Marc Benioff.

After serving a stint at the Gates Foundation, food scientist Michelle Egger co-founded Biomilq with Leila Strickland.

But why did a “climate change” organization invest money in a lab-grown breast milk company?

According to CEO Michelle Eggers, at the moment, approximately 10% of the world’s milk supply is used to produce milk for infant formula. This is apparently bad for the planet. Eggers and Strickland tout Biomilq as an environmentally-friendly means of feeding babies. Their hope is Biomilq will reduce the carbon footprint of the infant formula industry.


At the moment, we have mysterious fires that are devastating the American food supply. For 3 months, the FDA shut down one of the facilities that America’s largest infant formula manufacturer uses. Despite no link between the bacteria that made the babies sick and the bacteria found in the factory. Furthermore, the FDA discovered no explanation for the infections, but kept the facility shut down another month.

Bill Gates is funding a lab-grown milk factory. (By the way, to create the milk, donors gave breast and milk cells to the company in exchange for a Target gift card. These cells, placed in a bioreactor, replicate the environment found inside of a breast, and produces milk as a end result.)

    Okay, so what did babies live on before baby formula?

    Anyone seriously look into what exactly is in B.F.? I’m just curious as to how healthy it might be for an infant.

    & Don’t you find it odd they shut the plant down, caused a shortage then are re-opening it after 3months. Were they ‘re-tooling’?~ maybe to add a magick ingredient perhaps? Like something not strictly required. :idea:

      I think the hepatitis B shot that they give babies within 24 hours of birth is causing stomach problems for many babies where they cry a lot and the parents don’t know what’s wrong. It seems the breast milk isn’t agreeing with them and so the pediatrician is putting them on special formulas and probiotics for their stomach.

    I heard some infant formula is hard to find on the shelves. I just found this on a social media post if you know of any young mothers who may need it to feed their babies.
    Yo can make it yourselves at home.

    Anyone who has been jabbed should Not breast feed their baby. The baby could die from the toxic spike proteins.
