Formula can for babies open. Been feeding it. Is she exposed cronobacter bacteria?

my 8 month old baby was given formula which the can was damaged and it was slightly open. I dont know how long the can was open, but she has been drinking the can for 2 days. I am extremly worried . Could she be exposed to cronobacter bacteria. She has been theething and a tooth is showing is that the cause of a little diareea or should i seek medical attention for the formula?

Thank you for the query
Don't feed your child from the open can any more. If she had to develop any signs of gastro-enteritis she would have developed by now. But i think its best to discard that can and start afresh. You may see your pediatrician only if she shows any signs of infection like decreased appetite, fever, diarrhea or vomiting.
Hope that helps. God bless you
