Third Baby Sickened By Tainted Formula

KSCB News - December 29, 2011 8:16 am

Health officials say an Oklahoma baby is the
third infant this month sickened by bacteria sometimes associated
with tainted infant formula.
The child, from Tulsa County, was infected with Cronobacter
sakazakii but fully recovered. An Illinois child also rebounded
after being sickened by the bacteria. A Missouri infant who was 10
days old died.
The Missouri child’s death was initially linked to Enfamil
powdered infant formula. Powdered formula has been suspected in
cases in years past. But health officials say the Oklahoma child
had not consumed Enfamil.
U.S. officials are awaiting results from testing of powdered
formula and distilled water used to prepare it. A Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention spokeswoman said it’s not clear that
the three cases are connected.
