According to my cousin in the lab, the issue is not with the formula, but with the bottle (old formula stuck in hard to reach places, bacteria from people's hands, not washing bottles properly etc)

I work in a hospital and we no longer sterilise bottles. Hot soapy water, scrub with a bottle brush and rinse with some boiling water.

I stopped around 5-6 months. The ABA say for a healthy term baby it is unnecessary to sterilise. My aunty and friend are NICU nurses and repeatedly told me even for most of the premmie babies they just use hot soapy water.
I have however sterilised the bottles from the days I'm at work a couple times of late because I have solar hot water and it wasn't overly hot at the time of washing.
As for the formula not being safe, rubbish. Australia has one of the toughest quality control measures there is.

Never. I FF and was advised by my midwife that sterilising was no longer recommended - just hot soapy water.
So bottles went through the dishwasher, and teats got cleaned in hot soapy water.
I'll do the same next time too.
