On Wednesday, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced the Freedom to Import Infant Formula Act to permanently remove tariffs on baby formula and prohibit U.S. Customs and Border Protection from seizing or enforcing restrictions on importation of formula from certain foreign countries. This bill aims to alleviate current baby formula shortages across the United States, and permanently cut arbitrary regulations set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“Mothers all across the country are faced with empty shelves where infant formula once was. They are resorting to all options to feed their hungry babies, from making formula themselves to diluting and rationing the little they have left—which can have dangerous outcomes for their babies,” said Dr. Paul. “While the Biden Administration and government bureaucrats stand idly by – yet again – to watch a crisis run out of control, my bill offers a commonsense solution that will deregulate the baby formula industry, lower costs for families and increase supply at stores across the United States.”
