WASHINGTON — Two Democratic senators are pressing the Biden administration to designate a White House official to work with key manufacturers to address the shortage of baby formula across the U.S.

In a letter first obtained by NBC News, Sens. Patty Murray of Washington and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania on Wednesday urged President Joe Biden to “immediately assign a coordinator” within the administration to work directly with manufacturers and oversee a national strategy to increase supply chain resiliency as well as prevent future shortages.
