A Member of Congress has made a bombshell claim amid a baby formula shortage that has left millions of new parents searching for food.
In a Facebook video posted Wednesday, Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) claimed the federal government is sending pallets of baby formula to holding facilities near the U.S.-Mexico border while stores nationwide struggle to keep it on the shelves.
As Fox News reports:
Cammack posted pictures to social media of empty formula shelves in Florida next to the pallets of food being sent to the border, saying in the video that a concerned border patrol agent sent her the image.
The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula.
The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce.

She said the picture comes from “Ursula processing facility” in Texas, where thousands are being housed and processed and then released.” The Florida lawmaker said the concerned agent told her that she “‘would not believe the shipment I just brought in.’”
“He has been a border patrol agent for 30 years and he has never seen anything quite like this. He is a grandfather and he is saying that his own children can’t get baby formula,” she added.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection did not immediately respond to a Fox News request to confirm the authenticity of the image.
Finding baby formula has become more difficult due to supply chain shortages and fallout from safety recalls.
The White House says it’s working “24/7” to address the formula shortage.
