CR Statement for Subcommittee on Health Care and Financial Services Hearing on the FDA’s Oversight of the Infant Formula Shortage

Consumer Reports submitted a written statement by Brian Ronholm, Director of Food Policy at Consumer Reports, for the Subcommittee on Health Care and Financial Services hearing on the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) oversight of the infant formula shortage and the proposal to reform the Foods Program at the FDA.

In the statement, Ronholm shares how the organizational structure, governance, and performance of the FDA food program impacted the infant formula recall and how the FDA’s recent plan to restructure the foods program will be inadequate in preventing another similar crisis.
