Soyalac(R) Powdered Infant Formula 1993

Three infants developed Salmonella Tennessee infection after consuming Soyalac Powder(R) infant formula. Two of the infants lived in Canada and one infant lived in Illinois. The Food and Drug Administration investigated the Minnesota plant where the formula was manufactured. They found Salmonella Tennessee where the product had been dried and from cans of the powdered formula. Drying milk does not destroy Salmonella.
