As the Biden Administration is slow to respond to a severe shortage of baby formula in the United States, stores throughout Mexico are fully stocked especially with the high-demand Enfamil brand.
Breitbart Texas dispatched members of the Cartel Chronicles team to document the availability of baby formula in various Mexican cities, including several along the U.S. border.
In the city of Piedras Negras, opposite Eagle Pass, Texas, the Soriana Supermarket is fully stocked for infant nutrition items.
In Eagle Pass, Walmart aisles were empty.
In the border city of Matamoros, just south of Brownsville, Texas, a Walmart supermarket and also fully stocked.
In the capital of the border state of Tamaulipas, Ciudad Victoria, a Soriana Supermarket presented a similar scene.
The GranD Supermarket in Ciudad Victoria had similar results.
In Mexico City, a Walmart offered full shelves.
Within the past week, the FDA announced that it would ease regulations to allow for the importation of formula. Experts cautioned that shelves would not be stocked with the imported goods for more weeks to come, however.
