These products (and other sizes) were recalled on March 17 due to a risk of deadly infections with Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria.
Cronobacter can survive in powdered infant formula and cause life-threatening infections. The complications may include meningitis, sepsis, or an intestinal infection called Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC).
The risk is greatest for premature infants, infants under 2 months of age or infants with weakened immune systems. The symptoms may include fever, poor feeding, excessive crying, low energy, and other serious symptoms.
