That's extraordinary. It normally takes two weeks for Nestle to ship formula to the United States but our government shortened that to just three days by utilizing military transport planes.
Sooo...if we had recognized three months ago that the Abbott shutdown was going to be more than just a two or three day thing, we could have temporarily relaxed the labeling standards for European imports in March and had the formula by conventional means before Easter instead of waiting until mid May to relax the standards and getting it this way in late May.
I can see why congratulations are in order.
