MEANWHILE parents in the U.S. are still struggling to find baby formula on shelves at stores.
AND to better tackle this challenge some 30-METRIC TONS of baby formula has been flown in from Germany using a military aircraft.
The consignment landed in Indianapolis on Sunday local time and will be first sent to areas with the most urgent need.
The US has been witnessing a baby formula shortage ever since manufacturer Abbott Nutrition had to recall products amid a suspected link to bacterial infections in infants.
The recall and the subsequent shutdown of one of the company's manufacturing plants aggravated the supply chain problems causing almost half of baby formula supplies to go out of stock in the U.S. last week.
