As testing continues today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration in an effort to pinpoint where a 10-day-old Lebanon child may have contracted the rare bacteria Cronobacter sakazakii, another case has opened in Oklahoma.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Acting Director of News and Electronic Media Dr. Barbara Reynolds confirmed a case of Cronobacter sakazakii in the state of Oklahoma was reported to the CDC this week, but had no details on the investigation, which is being led by the Oklahoma Department of Health and Senior Services.

The Oklahoma child, according to Reynolds, is recovering.

The Daily Record has made contact with the ODHSS for comment, but was unable to contact the department's communications coordinator, Sheree Powell, by press time.
