Gold Medal flour recalled for possible E. coli contamination

General Mills announced Monday it has voluntarily recalled 5-pound bags of its Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour for E. coli after it was found while sampling the bags.

The recall is centered on bags with a “better if used by” date of Sept. 6, 2020. The UPC is 000-16000-19610-0.

If you have any questions about this recall or need a replacement coupon for any product included in this recall, call 1-800-230-8103.

Consumers are reminded that flour is not a ‘ready to eat’ ingredient.

According to a news release, “flour is made from wheat that is grown outdoors where bacteria are often present. Flour is typically not treated to kill bacteria during the normal milling process.”

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall.
