Biden defends his FDA, now under investigation, for baby formula shortage failures

The baby formula shortage in the United States has led to an investigation of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Health and Human Services Office of Inspector Geneal will begin to audit actions by the FDA beginning “with a September 2021 report of contamination and ended with a massive  February recall of infant formula” reports the Western Journal. 

There is a documented five-month gap between the original contamination findings and the Food and Drug Administration’s action to close the Abbott Nutrition plant in Sturgis, Michigan.

The audit will investigate whether the FDA proceeded properly once the contamination was discovered, and to “safeguard the nation’s food supply, including infant formula and ensure all ingredients are safe” reported ABC. 

President Biden defended the FDA’s actions at the White House Wednesday: “Well, I don’t think anyone anticipated the impact of the shutdown of one facility in — the Abbott facility.  And it was accurately shut down because it was — the formula was questioned, in terms of its purity. And so, once we learned of the extent of it and how broad it was, we kicked everything into gear.”

Contradicting himself, he also stated that he became aware of the problem in April, an entire month before invoking the Defense Production Act to increase formula production. So in fact he did not kick everything into gear “once we learned of the extent of it and how broad it was.”

Biden was then asked by a reporter if during a meeting with CEOs, “didn’t those CEOs just tell you that they understood it would have a very big impact?”

“They did, but I didn’t,” Biden replied.

Biden then said that “the real problem occurred when it started — when it got shuttered.  So, you’re saying we — they should have anticipated it would be shuttered.”

An FDA report from September of 2021 said that the Sturgis plant “did not maintain a building used in the manufacture, processing, packing or holding of infant formula in a clean and sanitary condition.”

Shortly after, in October, a whistleblower came forward with a report which was “not ready by agency officials until February, according to Frank Yiannasm, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for food policy and response.” 

FDA officials blamed the pandemic and issues of processing mail for its delay. The New Yorker wrote the whistleblower’s report and allegations was “ghastly reading.” 

In the report, the whistleblower claimed every so often the plant “failed to properly seal cans of formula, and, as a work-around, performed safety tests on empty cans instead.” 

Additionally, poor equipment “caused product flowing through the pipes to pick up the bacteria that was trapped in the defective areas of the pipe” the report stated, adding that problems dated back as far as 2019 when formula at the plant tested positive for microorganisms that were supposed to be destroyed.

    biden is happy!
    Well his handlers are!
    There is nothing more invigorating to the communists to know that the “””peons””” do not have food to put on the table. And for the babies to starve. When a lion takes over a pride, he eats the small babies. Cannot share the gene pool with a defeated other male.
    But the communists do not realize that the people “remember” that fated queen saying:” Let them eat cake!”
    They should also remember the fate of the leaders of the “insurrection”””!

Robert De Niro anti-Trump speech mysteriously replaced in teleprompter at Awards Show



Screen Shot 2023 08 25 at 9.30.14 AM

Actor Robert De Niro got a taste of Hollywood’s own medicine when he was reportedly unable to deliver his planned Trump-bashing speech at an awards show. The “Killers of the Flower Moon” actor spoke at Monday’s Gotham Awards, but says when he took the stage he discovered that his anti-Trump remarks had been altered.

Variety reports:

The actor said he had not been informed of the changes, which took out any mention of the former president. De Niro, who was on hand to present “Killers of the Flower Moon” with the Gotham Historical Icon and Creator Tribute, criticized the awards show and Apple. “I don’t feel like thanking them at all for what they did,” he said. “How dare they do that, actually.”

According to sources with knowledge of the show, a revised version of the speech was placed into the teleprompter less than ten minutes before the event started. Reportedly the speech was altered at the behest of Apple, the film’s producer.

The source says the company was responding to feedback from the filmmaking team that wanted the actor’s remarks to be centered on the movie. However, a source close to the film denied that there was any censorship involved and said that the incident was a miscommunication.

There had been multiple versions of De Niro’s speech and there was a desire to focus solely on the moviemakers and their artistry, according to the source. Apple and the filmmakers were unaware that De Niro hadn’t signed off on the final draft, the source maintained.

De Niro did however take the opportunity to criticize Trump regardless of the prompter; the actor read his remarks from his phone. “Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal,” De Niro said. “The former president lied to us more than 30,000 times during his four years in office. And he’s keeping up the pace in his current campaign of retribution. But with all his lies, he can’t hide his soul. He attacks the weak, destroys the gifts of nature and shows disrespect, for example, by using ‘Pocahontas’ as a slur” he stated.
