BABY FORMULA INFLATION REDUCTION ACT

Quote
1. The FDA shall be required to classify any baby formula as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for importation purposes if such baby formula is approved as safe by the governments of Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the United Kingdom, Norway, or any member country of the European Union, notwithstanding any lack of compliance with Atlasian labeling and nutrition standards.

2. The FDA shall make a determination as to the safety of any branded baby formula sought for importation from a country not identified in section 1 within 45 days of an application therefor.

3. Customs and Border Patrol shall remove baby formula manufactured by HiPP and Holle from its mandatory seize list, notwithstanding any lack of compliance with Atlasian labeling and nutrition standards.

4. All tariff rate quotas on baby formula imported from a country identified in section 1 of this act are hereby eliminated.

5. The WIC program shall not impose any size limits or maximum monthly allowances on baby formula purchases. 7 CFR 246.10 shall be amended accordingly.

6. When awarding a sourcing contract for baby formula under the WIC program, each State shall permit the three (3) suppliers with the lowest wholesale price to participate in the program. No State shall give an exclusive, sole-source contract to a single supplier unless only one (1) supplier seeks to participate therein.

7. Income eligibility to participate in the WIC program shall be expanded to include otherwise eligible persons making up to 200% of the federal poverty limit.

8. This act shall take effect thirty (30) days from the date of passage.

Sponsor: Mr. R
