Sean Hannity Falsely Identifies 'Pallets and Pallets' of Baby Formula at the Border Amid Shortage
CNN debunks a photo the Fox News host shared and said was baby formula reserved for "illegal immigrants"

The Banned Played On


There is a shortage of baby formula in the US.  Butt, the so-called baby formula shown by Hannity was actually NIDO® products. There is no shortage of NIDO® products (clearly marked "for ages 1-3) at the grocery store.

Fox uses disinformation to cause outrage among their viewers.  Fucker Carlson uses "replacement" bullshit to provoke White supremacists.  We saw the impact of Carlson's replacement theory in Buffalo where a White supremacist committed mass murder.

The disinformation spewed by Fox News causes dangerous outrage.

(Note: post has been updated with a response from Sean Hannity and information about baby formula vs. powdered milk for babies.)

Fox News' Sean Hannity shared photos that falsely claimed to show "pallets and pallets" of baby formula at the southern border that were reserved for "illegal immigrants," which CNN quickly debunked, calling the "Fox and Friends" segment an "illuminating example" in "outrage creation."

Rep. Kat Cammack (R - Florida) joined the Fox News host on Friday to talk about the national shortage of baby formula. She's among several Republicans who have decried President Joe Biden over his decision to provide baby formula to migrant infants. Cammack has been on several Fox shows to express outrage over the issue and shared photos she said were given to her by a Customs and Border Patrol agent.

"Pallets and pallets of baby formula for illegal immigrants and their families even as hardworking American…families, we are now suffering a massive nationwide shortage," Hannity lamented, showing the photos on-air.

Hannity and Cammack's characterization of the photos, however, was debatable and, according to CNN Business managing editor Alex Koppelman, both misleading and incorrect. Koppelman, who authored a report on the matter for the Reliable Sources newsletter, said the packages contain powdered milk, not baby formula.

"The photo Hannity pointed to, and the one that followed it, showed boxes and boxes clearly labeled NIDO," the report, titled "Outrage Creation," read. "As anyone at Fox could have discovered with about a minute's worth of fact-checking, NIDO is not baby formula; it is powdered milk. As its maker, Nestle, specifically notes: 'NIDO® products are only intended for children ages 1 year and older.'"

"There is undoubtedly some formula being provided to babies in these centers at the border — you'd assume there would be, unless you expect the government to simply decide to starve babies in its care," Koppelman continued.

"The narrative spun over the past two days on the right, though, has let people imagine not a little bit of necessary food but rivers of formula going to the undocumented over themselves. It's an illuminating example of how Republican politicians and right-wing media work in concert, turning the thinnest possible set of facts into days of outrage over Them getting something You deserve — and then, as with the photos Hannity and 'Fox & Friends' used, abandoning facts altogether."

Hannity took to Twitter to argue his point. "As this picture shows (which aired in the same segment), there is in fact baby formula at the border and two of the additional pictures we aired during the interview w/ Rep. Cammack were milk products for babies over 1 years old," he wrote, adding that when he reached out to the White House and Department of Homeland Security for comment, he said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended sending baby formula to the border.

However, powdered milk for "babies over 1 year old" is not formula. According to the Cleveland Clinic, "A healthy baby should drink breast milk or formula until they are 1 year old. "Generally, babies should have at least 24 ounces per day between the ages of 9 months to 1 year. But once your baby starts eating a full diet of nutritious solid foods, make the switch to cow's milk, which offers protein and vitamin D."

Pampers agrees, writing that "The general rule of thumb is to start transitioning from formula to cow's milk at 1 year, but not anytime sooner," and suggests to "wait until your baby is at least 12 months old to start transitioning from formula to milk." On a similar note, Yummy Toddler Food writes that "babies should stop drinking formula by 12 months of age."

The reason, they say is: 1) "When a baby turns a year old, they are typically eating three meals and two snacks a day, and are getting the majority of their nutrition from food." And 2) "Continuing to use formula can reduce a child's appetite for food and can potentially cause challenges with learning to like a range of foods and textures.

According to The Wall Street Journal, "some 40% of the nation's baby formula is out of stock," citing Abbott Laboratories' February recall of several brands and the closure of a Michigan plant after four infants fell deathly ill after ingesting powdered formula that contained bacteria. "Last year Abbott accounted for 42% of the U.S. formula market, about 95% of which is produced domestically," WSJ reported.

I actually felt sorry for coked up Junior during his RNC speech. I found his over-excitement telling. I thought the close-up accentuated his oversized teary pupils and that was entertaining. His bad timing was amusing. But when he couldn't get through two sentences without exhibiting coke jaw, it just made me pissed his media-whore girlfriend or grifter family members didn't get him out from behind the dais. It was then I realized that they just didn't give a shit about that poor loser.

Love the "pisses off the left" trollers. They comprise the Nugent Party. Ted Nugent claimed that he shit and pissed his own pants in order to get a 4F so he wouldn’t have to serve his country. The Nugent party is led by a forgot-which-foot bone spur traitor who claims "I like people who weren't captured." 

McCain's survival through years of nearly fatal torture and hardship in the Hanoi prison known as the "Hanoi Hilton" was made more impressive by his refusal to be repatriated before the release of all the American POWs captured before him.

Nugent later claimed that the pissing and shitting incident wasn't true, and he did get a student deferment first and a later deferment for an unknown medical reason. 

The Nugent Party members sit in their own shit and piss because they think it pisses off the left.

Actually that comment was to Al J, not me.

My understanding is that decisions by courts such as SCOTUS become

common law as opposed to statute law passed by legislatures.

Court settlements are considered to be enforceable laws 

in spite of the lack of statute or legislation.

I have zero legal training so my explanation might not be perfect

for someone in the business or a trained lawyer.

Did you see Boebert's newest tweet? It's a hilarious example of personal cognitive dissonance.

“Anyone else consider that these companies suddenly offering to pay for employee abortions are doing so just to avoid paying for maternity leave?” she asked on Twitter. “Cheaper to kill the baby... true evil personified,” Boebert said.

This is the same person who only last year posted this against maternity leave:

“Listen, I’m a mother of four. I delivered one of my children in the front seat of my truck. Because, as a mom of four, we got things to do. Ain’t nobody got time for two and a half months of maternity leave. We have a world to save here.”

The shortage of formula begins: "Abbott voluntarily recalled powder formulas that included Alimentum, EleCare, and Similac in February because of  potential contamination with an environmental bacteria called Cronobacter sakazakii . Two babies died and two more got sick after having been fed formula produced at the Sturgis plant."

***

The Food and Drug Administration on Monday reached an agreement with Abbott Laboratories on the steps needed to reopen the company’s shuttered baby formula plant, which could begin to ease the shortage of infant formula that has frightened and exasperated parents nationwide.

The F.D.A. said it expected Abbott to restart production in about two weeks, and was poised to review progress at the plant in Sturgis, Mich. It has been shut down since February after several babies who had consumed formula that had been produced there fell ill and two died.

The agreement stems from a U.S. Department of Justice   complaint   and   consent decree   with the company and three of its executives. Those court records say the F.D.A. found a deadly bacteria, called cronobacter, in the plant in February and the company found more tranches of the bacteria later that month.

According to the complaint, the same Sturgis factory had also produced two batches of formula in the summer of 2019 and 2020 on different production equipment that tested positive for the bacteria.

Abbott staff “have been unwilling or unable to implement sustainable corrective actions to ensure the safety and quality of food manufactured for infants,” leading to the need for legal action, the documents state.
Cammack said she was not blaming the babies — “it is not the children’s fault at all” — but she and Abbott blasted the Biden administration for allowing this happen.
The problem is that the Biden administration is following the law — a law that President Donald Trump also followed (though he wasn’t happy about it).
The Flores Agreement was enacted in 1997 and followed by every administration since then.

Are you really that obtuse?  The baby formula was recalled due to it making some infants sick and one died.  They had to stop production while under investigation.  It had nothing the fuck to do with the Biden administration.  I guess you would have preferred to leave it on the shelves because hey, what is a few sick and dead babies.  You probably also think that we are shortchanging American babies by sending formula to the border.  That so called baby formula at the border is powdered milk meant for children 3 and up.  IT IS NOT INFANT FORMULA!

It had nothing the fuck to do with the Biden administration. 

There are real questions on the FDA and should they have caught this problem much sooner.  Last Sept, the FDA knew about a possible connection between Abbott formula and deadly infant infections.  Yet it took four additional months and at least two dead babies with others hospitalized before the recall was issued.

FDA had documented serious safety concerns at this Abbott plant in 2019, 2021 and 2022.  The FDA found cronobacter in this plant and Abbott had to previously destroyed formula due to contamination that they caught in 2019 and 2020.

Digging into FDA and Abbott actions should be a focus of Congressional and media investigative reporting.
