Abbott warns it will take TEN WEEKS to get baby formula products on shelves when FDA finally allows its biggest factory to reopen as crisis for parents across US trying to feed their kids deepens

  • Abbott Laboratories said it could be 10 weeks before baby formula is restocked 
  • Once given FDA approval, Abbott’s Michigan plant could reopen in two weeks
  • However, the company said it will take six to eight weeks to replenish its supply 
  • The plant closed in mid-February amid reports of infant illness and death
  • After a thorough review of all available data, Abbott said ‘there is no evidence to link our formulas to these infant illnesses’ 
  • Congress will hold a meeting in two weeks to address the formula shortage
  • Officials have called the shortage an ‘increasingly alarming’ crisis
  • Sen. Mitt Romney slammed the FDA for keeping the Abbott plant closed
  • He claims keeping the plant closed ‘risks the lives of infants across the nation’
