(Reuters) – The Federal Trade Commission said on Tuesday it had launched an inquiry into the ongoing shortage for infant formula in the United States.
“The inquiry seeks information about the nature and prevalence of any deceptive, fraudulent, or otherwise unfair business practices aimed at taking advantage of families during this shortage,” the FTC said on its website.
