Description:
Powdered infant formula (PIF) contaminated with harmful bacteria has been implicated as a source of illness in infants. In recent years, Cronobacter species1 associated with PIF has emerged as a cause of disease in infants. In 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued guidelines on the safe preparation, storage and handling of powdered infant formula (WHO, 2007). These guidelines were informed by two risk assessments on the subject, jointly hosted by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the WHO (FAO/ WHO, 2004 and 2006). The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has received requests from the Department of Health, public health nurses, dietitians and parents for guidance on the safe preparation, storage and handling of PIF. In order to develop this guidance, the FSAI hosted a seminar on Cronobacter species and infant feeding in October 2006, which was attended by participants from the health and food safety community, interested academics and the infant formula industry. The FSAI presented a consultation document to participants for comment. Over 220 comments were received from 26 individuals or groups and these comments have formed the basis for this Guidance Note No. 22 Information Relevant to the Development of Guidance Material for the Safe Feeding of Reconstituted Powdered Infant Formula.
