Governor Sununu Joins 18 Governors in Calling on Biden Administration to Address Infant Formula Crisis

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu joined 18 other Governors in writing to President Biden to demand immediate, decisive, and robust action surrounding the ongoing infant formula crisis.

The Governors urge the President to suspend red tape that limits the importation of safe infant formula from foreign countries by suspending all tariffs, quotas, and similar trade restrictions on infant formula until the crisis is abated. They also are calling on the FDA to immediately update labeling standards on foreign formula.

The Governors write, "We stand ready to enhance the partnership between our states and the federal government as well as the private and public sectors to assist parents in need. Now is the time parents need the assurance that they can provide the basic necessities for their family, and nothing is more critical than infant formula."
