Baby formula scare spurs Ill. child death review
Ill. coroner says newborn death doesn't appear linked to infant formula, but seeks more tests
By The Associated Press

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) ' An Illinois coroner says a baby girl's recent death doesn't appear to be linked to an investigation into infant formula given to a Missouri newborn who apparently died of a rare bacterial infection. But he's seeking more tests.

Madison County Coroner Steve Nunn said Friday that an autopsy revealed no physical evidence of infection in the Illinois child. But he wants additional lab tests "in view of recent public health reports concerning the possibility of infant formula contamination."

At least five national retailers have pulled a batch of powdered Enfamil Newborn formula with the lot number ZP1K7G after Sunday's death of a 10-day-old Missouri boy.

Preliminary hospital tests indicate the boy died of a rare infection caused by a bacteria sometimes found in dried milk and powdered formula.
