At least 3 months ago, I was at Walmart and noticed that the baby formula shelves were poorly stocked. My heart sank. Already aware that food shortages were coming, I refused to believe that the most vulnerable would be hit first and hardest, so I did my research and found that indeed there was a serious shortage of baby formula. I wanted to shout it from the mountain tops, but the MSM was not talking about it.
Finally, last night I saw my first mainstream media story about the shortage. Nora O’Donnel read her lines about the problem with a super-typical mechanical empathy. I guess the manufactured crisis has ripened sufficiently that propagandists have the green light to start fearmongering about it.
So how did the shortage come about? From what I can piece together, the United States supply of baby formula is dominated by a company called Abbott. Abbott has an agreement with the FDA to provide the formula for the WIC program. Lots of kickbacks, etc.
Abbott recalled many of its brands after “two FDA inspectors [in September of last year] said they observed an Abbott processing operator touching ‘non-food contact surfaces’ — essentially anywhere in the facility that doesn’t come in contact with formula. Without changing his gloves or sanitizing his hands, the same worker touched the inside of a bag of ingredients that was being weighed.”1
A few infants had fallen sick with cronobacter, presumably after being fed formula from Abbott. Abbott Laboratories maintains that the cronobacter was not traced back to them.
It certainly seems odd that the FDA would recommend shutting down production and recalling so much baby formula at such a time as this, just when we are already facing serious food shortages. The evidence against Abbott is weak, and the need for formula is dire.
At best, this seems to me another over-kill response by the federal government, like the absurd totalitarian response to the coronavirus: Feels like another psychological operation to make us dependent on the State. With Covid, they destroyed the economy of the middle class, filled the coffers of the world’s elite, and imposed an experimental mRNA genetic treatment on everyone (and passports to prove status) because of a virus that, turns out, was about as deadly as a bad flu. It has now, thankfully, mutated into something less than the flu. Now, they’re shutting down production of baby formula because a few kids might have gotten sick from it.
Since the story has finally reached the mainstream media, all the reports I’ve seen include a warning to desperate moms: “Don’t make your own. It’s dangerous.” Does anyone else hear echoes of pandemic tyranny? “Don’t take Ivermectin. It’s dangerous. It’s for cows. You’re not a cow, are you?”
No. And we’re not sheep either, though it does at times seem like we are lambs being lead to the slaughter.
PS. I’m not advocating making your own formula. I’m not a doctor and know absolutely NOTHING about it. I’m just making an observation.
