About Cronobacter
Food contaminated with Cronobacter may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause serious illness. In rare cases it can cause 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. Severe cases often lead to death.
