Gold Medal flour re­called

The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS - — Jen­nifer Shee­han

Gen­eral Mills is vol­un­tar­ily re­call­ing 5-pound bags of its Gold Medal un­bleached allpur­pose flour due to pos­si­ble E. coli con­tam­i­na­tion, ac­cord­ing to the U.S. Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

What to look for: Gold Medal Un­bleached All Pur­pose Flour with a bet­ter-if-used by date of Sept. 6, 2020. If you have this flour, throw it out. The re­call only af­fects this date.

The re­call was is­sued out of an abun­dance of cau­tion as Gen­eral Mills has not re­ceived any di­rect con­sumer re­ports of con­firmed ill­nesses.

E. coli causes di­ar­rhea, of­ten with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can re­cover com­pletely within a week, some peo­ple can de­velop a form of kid­ney fail­ure called hemolytic ure­mic syndrome.

Five months ago, King Arthur re­called more than 14,000 5-pound bags of its un­bleached all-pur­pose flour due to pos­si­ble E. coli con­tam­i­na­tion.
