Abbott suspends baby formula production due to floods at Michigan factory

Just two weeks after production resumed amid a months-long formula shortage, production of EleCare formula has come to a halt at Abbott, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of infant formula. due to floods.

According to CNN, a severe thunderstorm and rain swept through Michigan causing high winds and hail.

Abbott said in a statement:

Severe lightning and heavy rain hit southwestern Michigan Monday night, leading to high winds, hail, power outages and flood damage across the region.

The statement also reads:

As a result, Abbott discontinued production of the special EleCare formula that was underway to assess storm damage and clean and re-sanitize the plant. We have notified the FDA and will be conducting a comprehensive audit in conjunction with an independent third party to ensure the plant is safe to resume production. This will likely delay the production and delivery of new products by several weeks.

Production is expected to resume once the facility is “re-digitized”. Once the facility resumes operations, production of EleCare formula will begin.

In a tweet, US Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf stated:

We know Abbott is working quickly to assess the damage and will report its progress to us in the coming days. Once the company establishes a plan, the FDA will return to work to ensure that it can resume production of safe and quality infant formula products quickly.

Roomies, what do you guys think of this?
