US outlines plan for long-term baby formula imports

Source: Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ó U.S. regulators on Friday unveiled their plan to allow foreign baby formula manufacturers to stay on the market long term, an effort to diversify the nationís tightly concentrated industry and prevent future shortages.

The Food and Drug Administration said recent entrants to the U.S. market will have until October 2025 to make sure their formulas comply with federal standards for nutrition, labeling and manufacturing. The agency noted that some companies should be able to meet those requirements sooner.

The U.S. has been forced to turn to foreign manufacturers to boost formula supplies since February, when FDA inspectors temporarily shuttered the nationís largest domestic formula factory due to bacterial contamination.

3. So for three years they don't have to comply with FDA regulations?

The same regulations that shut down the plant in Michigan early in the year?

4. This for sure needs some more research

I was thinking the same thoughts as you. Although, I admit I haven't read much about this to know the details. I guess this will go on my ever griwing list of things to do.
