The staff members probed at the hospital included doctors, nurses and auxiliaries.

Italian Health Minister Renato Balduzzi ordered an immediate investigation after the seven-month-old baby boy named Marco received the fatal intravenous injection of milk in June.

Marco died June 29, two days after being injected.
