  • I believe there are many intersections of art and agriculture. Yesterday I saw one of those age-old intersections: Butter sculptures! It is always great to see the dairy industry in action. Thanks to Princess Kay for showing me around.
  • Yesterday at the @mnstatefair, I met with Minnesota FFA students and talked with them about the future of the farming industry. I am always heartened by the passion these young leaders have for agriculture. I promise: the future is bright!

  • Thanks to @RepNikkiB for having me at her Agriculture Advisory Council meeting this morning. I always welcome the opportunity to speak with local and state leaders about the work the Biden-Harris Administration is doing to support farmers, ranchers and rural communities.

@US_FDA

  • Today we issued warning letters to three infant formula manufacturers, as part of the agency’s ongoing commitment to enhance regulatory oversight to help ensure that the industry is producing infant formula under the safest conditions possible. https://fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-issues-warning-letters-three-infant-formula-manufacturers
  • The agency is not aware of any distributed product where contamination was confirmed and believes that the recalls were effective in removing the potentially contaminated batches of product from the market.
  • Additionally, these warning letters are not associated with any current recalls and therefore the FDA does not anticipate any impact to the availability of infant formula on the market.
