The Risks To Premature Newborn Babies

Powdered infant formula is not sterile.

Powdered infant formula may contain a bacteria called Cronobacter/Enterobacter Sakazakii (E. Sakazakii or "E. sak" for short).

This risk is greatest for:

  • Newborn children, less than one month old
  • Low birth weight, premature babies
  • Babies with compromised immune systems

Often these infants have been diagnosed with Meningitis, Salmonella, Sepsis or Bacteraemia. These illnesses can be caused by the bacteria E. sak.
