Biden’s America: Sriracha and Peanut Butter the Latest Items in Short Supply

Sriracha hot sauce and peanut butter are the latest additions on the list of hard-to-find products amid the supply chain crisis in President Biden’s America, joining other items such as baby formula and recently, tampons.

The country is still grappling with a baby formula shortage following the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) shutting down the Abbott Nutrition plant in Sturgis, Michigan, in February to investigate a purported bacterial outbreak at the facility.
