And of course, they have a stake in producing safe baby formula. The timeline here of how the White House was caught off guard is becoming very obvious. Jen Psaki yesterday said that they’ve been working on this for months if that’s the case, and they’ve completely failed to prevent this catastrophe, this crisis.
