Geobacillus stearothermophilus is the thermophile present in processing lines of powdered infant formula (PIF). We report the whole-genome sequences of G. stearothermophilus strains isolated from work-in-process products (sterilized and concentrated milk) of manufacturing plants. Understanding the genomic basis governing the metabolism of G. stearothermophilus can contribute to the safety management of PIF during its manufacture.
