4:32 am
new investigation. this morning, the house of representatives taking new action to address the baby formula shortage approving a bill last night that would allow more formula to be purchased with money from a federal program for low income families. the house also approved a measure to spend $28 million to help the fda increase formula supply. >> they can move quickly. we can get product here rapidly and, again, it should come from fda approved facilities. it's not about politics. >> reporter: both bills now head to the senate, but president biden taking a more immediate step, now invoking the defense production act to boost production. >> the defense production act gives the government the ability to require suppliers to direct needed resources to infant formula manufacturers before any other customer who may have ordered that good. >> reporter: it comes as lawmakers launch an investigation into the tax practices at formulamaker abbott labs. the shortage is partially blamed
4:33 am
on abbott's michigan plant shutting down in february when bacteria was reportedly found at the facility. now in a letter to abbott, the senate finance committee accuses the company of using corporate tax cuts to enrich executives and shareholders. records show abbott's profits increased 90% since 2019, and the company spent $8 billion in stock buybacks during that period. the senate committee claiming as abbott spent billions buying back its own stock, it appears that it failed to make necessary repairs to fix a critical manufacturing plant. abbott denies the buybacks impacted the michigan formula plant and says it complies with all local and international tax laws and regulations. abbott's lab in michigan is expected to re-open in two weeks but it could take months before store shelves are restocked with formula. andrew. >> em, thank you. covid cases are surging in parts of the country prompting a
4:34 am
new warning about masks. the cdc says one-third of americans mostly in the northeast and upper midwest are living in medium or high risk area and recommends those in high risk areas wear a mask in public, indoor settings and including schools. meanwhile, the cdc could recommend vaccine booster shots for kids age 5 to 11 today. less than 30% of kids in that age group are fully vaccinated. we turn now to the worries on wall street. the dow falling more than a thousand points yesterday and overnight stocks in asia fell sharply. inflation gets much of the blame. the wild ride on wall street this week may be hurting your 401(k), but consider this, the waltons, the family behind walmart just lost $34 billion in just two days. the dow wednesday suffered its worst one-day drop since 2020 and major retailers took the biggest hit. walmart's stock sliding 17% and

target down 24%. both say higher expenses are eating into their profits. >> they're struggling to maintain their profitability in the face of very high costs of doing business and higher labor costs. >> reporter: but home depot offered a different perspective showing a strong quarter as the home improvement industry remains hot. many of the company's customers are home builders and contractors who will get more clues about consumer spending later when bj's, kohl's and manufacturing company applied materials release their earnings. meanwhile, for the first time ever, gas prices now average at least $4 in all 50 states. with the cost of just about everything rising, experts are mixed on whether we're headed towards a recession. >> on the one hand we have a very strong jobs picture right now. there are more -- far more job openings, a record number of job openings versus
4:36 am
the number of unemployed but inflation is deeply embedded in our economy right now. rents are higher, groceries are higher, gasoline is higher. across the board it's higher and wages aren't keeping up. >> reporter: a survey of more than 130 ceos found more than half believe the u.s. will face a mild recession. other analysts predict a significant recession while warning that food prices are set to climb even higher. >> i don't think stocks are headed much further south unless the economy is going in a recession, and i just don't see that at this point. >> as for those food prices many suppliers still haven't passed on their new expenses to customers. for example, the wholesale price of eggs rose 200% last month the sameer piolad st year> e 18-yeasuspect peshtiooy the alledge nmguan reportedly claimed he w jasust joki lngast arye when hero wte about p alan to comt mimurder/sciuide. w york'sov gernor isow n looking btoolster t shetate's red agfl law by qureiring poceli
