Overall, as shown in table 1, the size of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet increased roughly $490 billion from about $8.4 trillion on September 29, 2021, to about $8.9 trillion as of March 30, 2022.


On the asset side of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet, the increase was concentrated in securities held outright, reflecting the net asset purchases that concluded in early March 2022. On the liability side, a decline in reserve balances was more than offset by increases in the Treasury General Account (TGA) balance, take-up at the Federal Reserve's overnight reverse repurchase agreement (ON RRP) facility, and Federal Reserve notes.


As shown in figure 1, total assets on the Federal Reserve's balance sheet rose roughly $490 billion over the past two quarters, to stand at nearly $8.9 trillion or 37 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) as of March 30, 2022. The increase in total assets was primarily driven by the increases in the securities held outright, which rose about $550 billion reflecting the net purchases of Treasury securities and agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS). The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) decided to start tapering net asset purchases in November 2021, and net purchases ceased in early March 2022.


The TGA balance rose on net about $383 billion to $557 billion on March 30, 2022. In December 2021, just prior to the debt limit resolution, the TGA had declined to a trough of roughly $42 billion. However, following the resolution, the Treasury used large increases in net bill and coupon issuance to raise the level of the TGA back above its five-day cash need.3 ,4 According to the Treasury's May 2022 Quarterly Refunding Statement, the TGA is expected to rise further and reach a June quarter-end level of $800 billion.


Take-up at the ON RRP facility increased about $370 billion to $1.8 trillion on March 30, 2022. Ongoing elevated participation reflected low repo rates and limited Treasury bill supply, though participation declined somewhat in January as bill supply increased. Finally, Federal Reserve notes increased about $71 billion to $2.2 trillion.


At its January 2022 meeting, the FOMC issued a statement informing the public about the approach it would take to reducing the size of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet. This statement communicated high-level principles regarding the FOMC's intended approach, which included information on the sequencing for removing policy accommodation with the Committee's balance sheet and interest rate tools as well as the intended longer-run size and composition of portfolio holdings.


At its May 2022 meeting, the FOMC announced plans for significantly reducing the size of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet. Consistent with the Principles for Reducing the Size of the Federal Reserve's Balance Sheet that were issued in January 2022, the statement outlines the Committee's intention to reduce the Federal Reserve's securities holdings over time in a predictable manner primarily by adjusting the amounts reinvested of principal payments received from securities held in the System Open Market Account (SOMA).


Specifically, beginning in June 2022, principal payments from securities held in the SOMA will be reinvested to the extent that they exceed monthly caps. For Treasury securities, the cap will initially be set at $30 billion per month and after three months will increase to $60 billion per month. The decline in holdings of Treasury securities under these monthly caps will include Treasury coupon securities and, to the extent that coupon maturities are less than the monthly cap, Treasury bills. For agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities, the cap will initially be set at $17.5 billion per month and after three months will increase to $35 billion per month.


Globally, the number of new weekly cases has continued the declining trend observed since a peak in January 2022. During the week of 16 through 22 May 2022, over 3.7 million cases were reported, a 3% decrease as compared to the previous week. The number of new weekly deaths also continues to decline, with over 9000 fatalities reported, representing an 11% decrease as compared to the previous week.

The FDA, along with CDC, and state and local partners, investigated a multistate outbreak of hepatitis A infections in the United States linked to fresh organic strawberries. These potentially contaminated strawberries were imported from Baja California, a state in northern Mexico, and branded as FreshKampo and HEB by a common supplier; they were purchased between March 5, 2022, and April 15, 2022. The Public Health Agency of Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency also investigated an outbreak of hepatitis A. Imported FreshKampo brand fresh organic strawberries were identified as the likely source of the outbreak in Canada.


Currently, the potentially contaminated product is past its shelf life and not available for purchase in stores. Consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not sell, serve, or eat any fresh organic strawberries branded as FreshKampo or HEB if purchased between March 5, 2022, and April 15, 2022. People who purchased the fresh strawberries and then froze those strawberries for later consumption should not eat them. They should be thrown away. If you are unsure of what brand you purchased, when you purchased your strawberries, or where you purchased them from prior to freezing them, the strawberries should be thrown away.


If consumers purchased fresh organic strawberries branded as FreshKampo or HEB between March 5, 2022, and April 15, 2022, ate those berries in the last two weeks, and have not been vaccinated against hepatitis A, they should immediately consult with their healthcare professional to determine whether post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is needed. PEP is recommended for unvaccinated people who have been exposed to hepatitis A virus in the last two weeks because vaccination can prevent a hepatitis A infection if given within 14 days of exposure. Those with evidence of previous hepatitis A vaccination or previous hepatitis A infection do not require PEP.

The downstream product removal conducted by Urban Remedy and reported on June 10, 2022, is now considered a market withdrawal. It has been determined that the product was not made using implicated strawberries.

As of June 7, 2022, CDC reports one additional probable case related to this outbreak. As part of this investigation, FDA has initiated an inspection. Additionally, based on records collected to date, purchase dates for potentially contaminated strawberries were between March 5, 2022, and April 15, 2022. 041b061a72
