The food recall warning of certain powdered infant formula issued on October 6, 2019 is revised to correctly identify the formula that may be contaminated with Cronobacter spp. President’s Choice brand Lower Iron milk based powdered infant formula had been incorrectly identified as having been associated with the testing results.

Food contaminated with Cronobacter may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness. Although Cronobacter is not commonly linked to human illness, in rare cases it can cause serious or fatal infections. Cronobacter can cause rare bloodstream and central nervous system infections and has been associated with severe intestinal infection (necrotizing enterocolitis) and blood poisoning (sepsis), especially in newborns.
