She worked as a budget analyst in the Office of Management and Budget, later joining the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.

Eight months after the baby formula shortage began due to the closure of a major manufacturing facility, officials in President Biden’s administration are still addressing supply chain issues. While the supply of baby formula has recovered in general, the amount stocked in various stores is uneven. 

The officials in charge of the response blame hoarding, supply chain bottlenecks and manufacturers making fewer varieties. 

“I know that there’s obviously still a problem,” said Federal Nutrition Program Deputy Under Secretary Stacy Dean. The USDA program she oversees provides formula to low-income mothers and infants, which constitutes over half of the formula consumed in the U.S.
