After a number of reports regarding baby formula that had been tainted with the Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria in recent weeks, new tests have found that various powdered infant formulas do not contain the killer bacteria.
According to Time, scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted the tests that revealed none of the formulas that were tested contained any traces of the bacteria.
The FDA said that they tested factory sealed containers of powdered infant formula and nursery water with the same lot numbers as the opened containers collected from Missouri and no Cronobacter bacteria were found.”
CDC tests on Enfamil Newborn formula, which was thought to have led to an infants death in Missouri last month, also came back negative, Time reported.
