May 24 (Reuters) - The Federal Trade Commission said on Tuesday it has launched an inquiry into the ongoing shortage for infant formula.

The inquiry comes in the wake of a product recall by top baby formula maker Abbott Laboratories and the closing of its manufacturing plant in Sturgis, Michigan during a probe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that has created one of the biggest infant formula shortages in recent history for U.S. families.
