Nationwide Flour Recall Issued – Check Your Pantry Now

A nationwide flour recall has been issued, and it’s important that you check your pantry now. The recall is due to concerns of E. coli contamination, which can cause serious illness if consumed.

The recall affects a popular brand of flour that is widely available in grocery stores across the country. The affected products are all-purpose flour and bread flour, both of which are sold in five-pound bags. The recall is limited to products that were manufactured in a specific facility and have specific date codes.

If you have purchased all-purpose or bread flour recently, it’s important that you check the date code on the bag immediately. The affected products have a “Best Used By” date of December 2022 and were manufactured in the Buffalo, New York facility.

If you have any of the affected flour in your pantry, you should immediately stop using it and throw it away. Do not consume it, even if you have cooked with it and not experienced any ill effects.

Symptoms of E. coli infection include diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. In severe cases, the infection can lead to kidney failure or death. If you have consumed any of the affected flour and are experiencing symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

The recall was issued after a sample of the flour tested positive for E. coli during a routine inspection. The company has not received any reports of illness related to the flour at this time.

It’s important to note that this recall only affects products from the specific facility and date code listed above. If you have purchased flour from a different facility or with a different date code, it is safe to use.

To stay up to date on the latest product recalls, it’s a good idea to sign up for email alerts from the FDA. Additionally, always check the date code and manufacturing location of any food products you purchase to ensure that they are safe to consume.
