President Biden announced Monday that officials are taking new steps to help ease the nationwide shortage of baby formula, including "reopening the largest domestic manufacturing plant and increasing imports from overseas," writes The Associated Press.

Increased imports will seek to lessen the baby formula shortage that has left parents nationwide struggling to get their kids the nutrition they need. The change will temporarily streamline the Food and Drug Administration's review process "to make it easier for foreign manufacturers to begin shipping more formula into the U.S.," says AP.
