Mexico Shelves Are Full Of Baby Formula


Mexico border towns are full of baby formula.  Surprise. Maybe we could ask the “immigrants” coming over to snag some on their way here.

If you have no problem whatsoever with aborting children up to birth why would you care about baby formula either?  Enfamil actually is an American brand. It’s safe. Mexico has it on the shelves and we don’t. Connect the dots? The Breitbart sent folks to wander down Mexico way and crossed the border.

Breibart:

Breitbart Texas dispatched local reporters to document the availability of baby formula in various Mexican cities, including several along the U.S. border.

In the city of Piedras Negras, opposite Eagle Pass, Texas, the Soriana Supermarket is fully stocked for infant nutrition items.

Picture from Breitbart.. more pics and locations at their site.

Biden Administration is slow to respond to a severe shortage of baby formula in the United States, stores throughout Mexico are fully stocked especially with the high-demand Enfamil brand.

Within the past week, the FDA announced that it would ease regulations to allow for the importation of formula. Experts cautioned that shelves would not be stocked with the imported goods for more weeks to come, however.

No shortage though so says the FDA. Thats why the Defense Production Act was put into play.

CBS:

President Biden announced Wednesday that he will invoke the Defense Production Act to address the baby formula shortage, meaning suppliers will be required to give resources to infant formula plants before sending them to other customers.

The Defense Production Act, enacted in 1950, authorizes the president to require companies to sign contracts or fill orders for products needed for the nation’s defense. It also lets the president make sure price gouging doesn’t occur and gives the president freedom to incentivize the expanded production, with loans and purchase commitments.

    Shocking. Maybe someone could just sneak over the border and load up their van. You think they’d be stopped and the product confiscated at the border? Need I ask. Another crisis to give insignificant bumblers something to control.

    I’m not going to belabor a point I’ve made earlier but most women have breasts that work. And for those who don’t there are excellent self-made formulas that can be made ahead and frozen in batches. It’s pathetic how crippled we appear to be by the disappearance of a product few people used 2 generations ago. Certainly few used it exclusively. For the vast number who can and choose not to, you are fueling the panic the authoritarians are using to tighten control measures that will lead to ruin. You are helping them to perfect their own ‘formula’ for command and control over things you won’t like.

      I understand your point.. I would just say that nutritional and supplemental nutrition for babies have come a long way in two generations. The days of the colicky baby can be reduced with a better understanding that some babies are unable to tolerate come components of milk. There are a variety of products able to minimize the suffering previous babies went through. Some mothers cannot breast feed if they are working mothers. Some mothers can’t breast feed. So I may differ with you somewhat with you. Agree the majority of babies can certainly thrive with self made formulas as you suggest. Still, I don’t see why this unprepared mothers and fathers need to go through this trying time for Anita Dunn. Yes, I believe she is now the one behind the curtain now. More on why I think that on a post soon! Thanks for your thoughts. I should add that we have many more preemies now that are even more dependent on special formulas that were not needed before. 🙂

        Your points are well taken, which is why I ‘hedged’ for exceptions. Don’t want to dump it all on stressed out parents. There are fine homemade formulas with and without milk. I’ve known parents who used both. Modern ‘improvements’ also mean Martek synthesized critical fats which, IMHO, are garbage. There are also products that improve lactation in many. I knew one couple (a doctor who tried it on his wife) who added 2 T. brewers yeast a day and was overrun with milk. Others, maybe not. Do their doctors even help them try? Are we in a one-track thought ditch here? I think so.

        Of greatest concern is the harbinger this represents.

        As Corey Lynn of Corey’s Digs recently wrote “the globalist takeover is coming at us from every possible angle. Whether we’re talking about biosecurity, finance, housing, health care, energy, transportation or food, all the changes we’re now seeing have one goal, and that is to force compliance with a totalitarian slave system.

        Accidental or not, there are folks – and quite likely ones like the odious Anita Dunn, who is a stunningly cunning candidate for chief mischief-maker – who use every crisis, real or not, to maneuver the Republic into their totalitarian slave system. That is one ‘formula’ we need in permanent short supply

The clock is running…. the hearing today with the Indian that is running the Dept of Interior is one scary ignorant lady who was planted to turn down all energy exploration. A great hearing about energy and will post tomorrow. A couple of Gopers I had not heard much about but laid the whole government destruction out.

    Absolutely disgusting. In those neighboring towns I wonder if they allow non-Hispanics to buy for their babies? It really sickens me and I am sorry for the moms struggling now but as I said to another post you wrote I thank God my grandson is 20 months because my daughter would not be able to handle this. We would all have to go hunting for baby formula and of course help her.

    That big mouthed “Bette Midler” said women need to all breastfeed and if they did we would not have this dilemma! Really? I bet she bottle fed her kids!

    Many women cannot breastfeed due to health reasons such as not being able to produce enough milk for their child, also there are a myriad of other reasons.

    I thought that was a very blanket, cold, and selfish remark so typical of the far left morons. Some are not even useful idiots!

    What no one has mentioned is the repeal of (IIRC) the Taft-Hartley Act, allowing the manufacturing of a product to be consolidated into a mere FOUR PLANTS nationwide. That means disaster if even one of those plants is shut down by, for instance, a labor dispute. Don’t think for one minute that the buyout of all those smaller plants didn’t raise the price as well.

    But wait. Why does the loss of 25% of our production cause the cause the nation to have TOTAL UNAVAILABILITY EVERYWHERE? Should not the remaining 75% of our production be putting product on shelves? Apparently not, but why not? Something weird is going on.

    “No one/We didn’t see this coming,” is the default statement to explain their failures of every single bozo in the current residient’s administration. The MSM never follows up on it – – – at all. I’d like to see how they would have reacted had this been the excuse used by the Trump Admin for 4 years.

      Just when you believe that there is not one more shoe to drop, Biden’s henchmen manage to screw things up one more way. But then again, chaos is the name of the game in their world. Yes, Trump would have had an impeachment over this by now.

      Giving credit where due, Donald Trump owns the record for the number of impeachments in a single term of office. That should look good in the presidential trivia book. Since the underlying theme of this post is government corruption, I had to laugh the other day when I read someone’s question on Quora. The questioner wanted to know how N. Pelosi can have a wealth of $105 million when she only makes $200,000 a year. The answer, as we all know, is miraculous conception: she just awakens in the morning and the money is in the bank. Or maybe it has something to do with her husband’s business reaping untold profits from her position as Speaker of the House. I suppose it could go either way.

    Please forgive me for going totally off subject (and, for a change, not talking about something at my blog).

    Have you heard the recent report that Democrats want to ensure gas shortages? They didn’t phrase it that way. You see, Biden has cut off drilling on federal leases (both on shore and offshore). Recently, he claimed that companies had no interest in bidding on leases that the courts said had to be opened in the Gulf of Mexico and in Alaska. (And, yes, I blogged on how the companies proved Biden a liar.)

    Anyway, now that we are getting to the stratosphere of gas prices due to Biden’s energy policy, Democrats want to put price controls on gasoline. That will only ensure that we will not have gas. It will not bring down the price of gas.

    Additionally, it will only exacerbate inflation (much like their plans to distribute gas cards and COVID relief checks).

    In 2012, Vietnam was getting nearly all of its baby formula from China. In that year, the Viets could not understand the highly unusual and unexplained phenomenon of thousands of baby deaths within a few months of birth. It turns out that the baby formula contained extremely high doses of arsenic. China apologized and, I think, paid grieving families off in piasters. This was all fine and dandy because, well, first, by 2012, Vietnam officials had their heads so far up China’s ass that they had to pump in the sunshine, and secondly, the Vietnamese have never had much regard for the lives of anyone, much less their own children. I think my point here is that I wonder if it would be a good idea not to import baby formula from China — but I am rushing forward now to assure every reader I’m almost 40% positive that China would never do anything like putting arsenic in any baby formula sold to Americans. No, seriously, you can almost always trust the U.S. government to do the right thing 20% of the time.

      Considering how many of our medications/pills come from China are recalled or later found out to have carcinogenic ingredients.. never reported in the media, but something I followed at work.. I have zero interest in foreign formula. But I am now positive with the defense production act, Biden has his hand now firmly on the wheel and Hunter will drop a line to his friends in high places and the formula will just poor in…oh, and he will be able with using the act to fund his friends as well. But why is Enfamil which we make here plentiful in Mexico? Just a question.

        Answer: For the same reason that it is possible for a citizen of Mexico to fill out an FDA application for EBT Card in Mexico. Thousands of these forms, by the way, are printed in Spanish at the American taxpayer’s expense, because we don’t want non-US/Mexican citizens to become confused about how to commit fraud against the United States government. So glad I could help with your question.

        The Married-MARRIED- and working Pakistani couple we know brag that they both have separate EBT cards each receiving the $250.00 monthly allowance. Oh and they have no children. Their people must be masters at working the system since I personally know of no working couple citizens receiving even oneEBT account. Are the illegals in our towns getting baby formula along with their other basket of government freebies?

        Re Meds: or just sloppy manufacturing practices. Mr. B’s doctor switched him from a Chinese manufactured generic to a USA manufactured name brand med which suddenly “worked” even though the Chicom version was given at double dose without effect. Many manufacturers found this out this hard way. Grohe made fine fixtures. Opened manufacturing in China, and their fixtures had big rust issues. I’m sure they supplied specifications for the manufacture, but clearly ‘cheap’ substitutes were made.

        Excellent point.. I still do not understand why the FDA allows up to a 30 percent variation in efficacy just as a beginning. It was true back in my day, not sure if it has been changed. I doubt it.

    During the Obama years, I talked at least once per quarter with a subsidiary near the border. Until PeMex started limiting sales to Mexican citizens, they would make runs over the border for gasoline. Not so sure that, with the drug cartel situation, it would be a good idea now for parents to attempt that run.

    Four more years, four more years! The American people aren’t stupid. It’ll take more than $7.00 at the pump, $5.00 for a gallon of milk a collapsed southern border, English spoken here signs in store windows and the unavailability of baby formula for the people to abandon mumbles and his hate mongering party.
