Food Microbiology - Targeted Surveys - 2015 - 2018 Bacterial Pathogens in Powdered Infant Formula - Final Report A targeted survey analyzed 3,962 samples of powdered infant formula for bacterial pathogens. All samples were tested for Enterobacteriaceae. Of the 3,962 samples, 2,965 were tested for generic Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Salmonella spp. and 997 samples were tested for Cronobacter spp. No Salmonella spp., Cronobacter spp. and generic E. coli were found in any of the samples. Enterobacteriaceae were found in 2 samples. CFIA conducted appropriate follow-up activities such as additional sampling.
