Gold Medal flour recalled
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.
