The CDC has issued a warning on the presence of Cronobacter in powdered infant formula, which can increase the risk of meningitis among babies ages 2 months and younger and cause serious illness for premature infants and those with weakened immune systems. Cronobacter infections may be prevented by breast-feeding, choosing liquid formula, or practicing safe preparation and storage of powdered formula, according to the CDC.
