This is an article I received today from monthly journal Emerging Infectious Diseases put out by the CDC. It is on Invasive Enterobacter sakazakii infections in infants from powdered formula. At the end of the article it many other journal articles about infections from powdered formula. Thought you all might be interested. I know its dry reading.....but its a good journal.

Twenty-four (92%) of 26 infants with feeding patterns specified were fed powdered formula. Formula samples associated with 15 (68%) of 22 cases yielded E. sakazakii; in 13 cases, clinical and formula strains were indistinguishable. Further clarification of clinical risk factors and improved powdered formula safety is needed.
That's an interesting article. I hadn't heard of this, but thanks for the link. I'm going to print it out.
