White House officials are working to provide government transportation and logistics support to infant formula makers as President Joe Biden seeks to address a national shortage of the vital products that’s left shelves empty and parents frustrated. 

The administration has also contacted suppliers who provide raw materials to formula manufacturers to encourage them to prioritize their production and delivery, according to a White House official who requested anonymity to detail the efforts. The effort came after Biden spoke Thursday with major formula manufacturers and retailers and pledged federal assistance to address the crisis.
