“乡亲, 我很高兴地告诉你，飞行方程式行动的第一次飞行装载了超过 70,000 磅婴儿配方奶粉即将登陆印第安纳州,” President Biden tweeted 星期日. “Our team is working around the clock to get safe formula to everyone who needs it.”
The formula, weighing 78,000 磅, was being transported by military plane, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One as President Joe Biden flew from South Korea to Japan.
The shipment was the first of several flights of formula approved by Biden that are headed to the U.S. from Europe. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was in Indianapolis on Sunday to welcome the baby formula to the U.S.
The White House has said 132 pallets of Nestlé Health Science Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior formula was to leave Ramstein Air Base in Germany for the U.S. 另一个 114 pallets of Gerber Good Start Extensive HA formula were expected to arrive in the coming days.
