This week the CDC declared an outbreak of Cronobacter infections over after the FDA received four complaints of Cronobacter infections in infants beginning on September 20, 2021, through January 11, 2022. Two of the babies died. Parents of all four infants reported having fed their children formula produced by Abbott Nutrition before they became ill.

Thank goodness for Rosa.

House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) today submitted for the record a report acquired from a whistleblower who worked at the Abbott facility which produces infant formula recalled by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in February. Chair DeLauro spoke about the report at the Fiscal Year 2023
