Baby formula shortage not a problem in Mexico, parents say

“Well, right now, when I got the formula, I’ve seen two, three people getting formula from the other side,” Jorge, of Tijuana, said. “They have it everywhere at the pharmacies, any store.”

As the United States deals with a baby formula shortage due to a recall and pandemic-related supply chain issues, some Americans told Fox News they’re purchasing baby formula from Mexico. The shortage prompted President Biden to invoke the Defense Production Act to ensure manufacturers have the necessary supplies for baby formula production. 

“The very first Costco that I got [to], the formula is here,” said Francisco, who was looking to purchase formula on behalf of his adult son in the U.S. “He’s not able just to get it in the States.”
