Product recall insurers take heed!  There is a new contaminant to worry about in infant formula and this time it's not <a href="">melamine</a>.  Rather, the culprit is c<a href="">ronobacter sakazakii</a>.  The bacteria has been found in Enfamil baby formula, one of the more popular brands sold at most major stores (like Walmart and Costco), and has been <a href="">linked</a> to a baby's death. The investigation into the cause of the contamination and the scope of costs is proceeding, but, in the interim, the good news is that the outbreak seems to have been <a href="ttp://">contained</a>.  Nevertheless, the recall costs will likely be significant.
