Abbott’s Troubled Baby Formula Plant Is Closed Again

The baby formula plant at the center of the nation's formula shortage has shut down again.

Flooding cause by heavy rains in southern Michigan forced the Abbott plant in Sturgis to pause production on Wednesday. The company said the storms overwhelmed the city's stormwater system.

Abbott said in a release that testing to make sure the plant can resume operations "will likely delay production and distribution of new product for a few weeks."

The plant went back online less than two weeks ago after shutting down earlier this year over possible contamination of formula produced there. Abbott is the country's biggest formula producer.

The company acknowledges that the Michigan plant needed extensive repairs, including replacing the roof and floors.
