A U.S. military plane carrying nearly 80,000 pounds of baby formula flew from Germany to Indianapolis Sunday as part of an effort to ease the critical shortage in the United States. Meanwhile, Congressmember Ilhan Omar and two dozen other House Democrats have urged the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the baby formula industry, which is controlled by Abbott Laboratories and a few other companies. The shortage is linked in part due to Abbott’s closing of a plant in Michigan in February due to contamination concerns first exposed by a whistleblower.
