WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is taking steps to ease a nationwide shortage of baby formula. Among the measures announced by the Biden administration include reopening the largest domestic manufacturer of baby formula and increasing the level of imported formula. The Abbott Nutrition plant has been closed since February because of contamination issues. Before it can resume producing formula, Abbott must overhaul its safety protocols and procedures.
