Abstract

Cronobacter sakazakii has emerged as a rare cause of neonatal meningitis, septicemia and enterocolitis. Contaminated infant milk formula (IMF) has been identified as one infection route. Currently no agreed standardized typing protocol has been developed to trace Cronobacter sakazakii. This review article aims to inform the readers about the agent's taxonomy, isolation and typing, epidemiology, incidence in foods, and behavior in powdered infant formula.
