Health officials in France are reporting four Salmonella Poona cases in infants whose strains are genetically linked.
The babies, two months to ten months in age, were sickened between the end of August 2018 and the end of December 2018. Three babies were hospitalized for their salmonellosis and all have been released.
Early investigations reveal a common food source with the four infants–powdered milk of the same brand produced by the same factory in Spain.
No other common food or drink has been reported.
Investigations are currently being conducted with the Spanish authorities and the manufacturer to define the management measures to be put in place.
