Our mission is to support parents and caregivers, ensuring they have access to the highest quality nutrition for their infants and toddlers. That is what makes Enfamil the No. 1 trusted brand of pediatricians and parents around the world.
This year, Reckitt colleagues and partners stepped up to support U.S. families following a product recall and temporary factory closure from another manufacturer, that dramatically reduced the overall supply of infant formula in the U.S. As shortages spread across the country, we ramped up operations, and have been working around the clock to produce more formula and getting it to stores more quickly. In addition, we are importing millions of servings from our factories abroad, whilst always adhering to the highest safety and quality standards.
Outlined below is a summary of how we have been addressing the shortage, through global efforts and collaboration, to ensure that essential nutrition can reach U.S. infants and children.
