OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KSWO) - Rep. Ross Ford and 21 additional House Republican representatives asked Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and Attorney General John O’Connor secure the release of baby formula held at the southern border and stop further shipments.

They wrote “...in the best interest of Oklahomans and to ensure the Federal Government is doing all they can to help Oklahomans receive the supplies they need by stopping the shipments of baby formula to the Southern Border and immediately release the stockpile of formula already being held there.”

They also said after a plant shut down, the Biden Administration should have worked to create more production and the FDA to prepare for a shortage.
