Objective: Powdered infant formula (PIF) may be contaminated by Enterobacter sakazakii and may cause infection and serious illness. This study describes parental practices for the preparation and use of PIF and compares them with the safety measures recommended by WHO. Methods: The parents of 131 formula fed infants aged 1 week to 12 months were interviewed. Results and conclusions: Based on four criteria derived from the WHO recommendations, only 11% of parents prepare the formula in a safe way. Health authorities should establish a set of preventive measures to be applied by manufacturers, health professionals and consumers.
