Such a pathogen, Enterobacter sakazakii, found in powdered infant formula was associated with outbreaks of really severe disease in neonates and babies. The disease is unreasonably hazardous because of its very high mortality rate, 20-50% of the infants who contracted the disease died and for survivor's often severe and long lasting complications results including neurological disorders.
