Cronobacter is an opportunistic pathogen associated with meningitis in neonates. Based on long-term surveillance of a powdered infant formula production facility, a persistent and thermotolerant isolate, denoted Cronobacter sakazakii SP291, was detected. Here we report the complete genome along with the sequences of three plasmids identified in this organism.
