After remarks about crime and law enforcement in the White House Rose Garden Friday afternoon, President Joe Biden was prompted by a reporter to address the ongoing baby formula crisis.
In his response, Biden said he would address the issue because it's "on the front of every newspaper."

Over the past two days, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed the administration has been working on the issue for months.
Yesterday, Jen Psaki placed blame for the shortage on a recall that happened in February, and noted that the Biden administration has been working "for weeks now" on this issue. https://t.co/qUeJUvqiWF— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) May 13, 2022
