The US baby formula shortage that politicians originally said would be fixed within weeks has dragged on for months - and there's no end in sight.

Formula stock rates have been dropping since the end of February, when the US Food and Drug Administration shut down a major formula plant and issued a recall of products manufactured there after an inspection found dangerous bacteria in several areas.
