Abbott laboratories allowed salmonella to form in the production line of their baby formula facilities. They raised prices of formula. The ReThuglican members of congress voted to not allow an investigation into this. The reThuglican members of congress voted to not provide funding to alleviate the problem and ease the availability of infant formula.
