It seems like sickness from Cronobacter does not happen often. CDC usually hears about 4 to 6 babies getting it each year. The problem is that the CDC does not hear about everyone who gets it, so we do not have a full count. Sickness from Cronobacter probably happens more often in older adults than babies, and usually adults do not get as sick as babies when they get Cronobacter.
