FDA Allows Imports for UK Baby Formulas

Could bring 2 million cans of formula to U.S.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Tuesday that it is easing regulations on baby formula imports from Britain. The agency has evaluated certain baby formulas manufactured under the Kendamil brand and has said the product has no safety or nutrition concerns for American infants.

The brand will send 40,000 cans to the U.S. immediately, and the FDA estimates that allowing the import of these products will put an additional 2 million cans of formula on grocery shelves by June. 

“We continue to do everything in our power as part of the all-of-government efforts to ensure there’s adequate infant formula available wherever and whenever parents and caregivers need it,” said FDA Commissioner Robert Califf.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For FDA officials as they evaluate the formula products that are to be imported.
  • That the president and his advisors would seek God’s wisdom as they address formula supply and other issues.
  • For Commissioner Califf as he oversees the FDA and authorizes the reopening of the Abbott plant.
