General Mills recalls 10 million pounds of flour

Source: USA Today

SAN FRANCISCO — In a rare recall of baking and cooking flour, General Mills on Tuesday issued a recall of 10 million pounds of flour because of a possible link to an outbreak of E. coli that has sickened 38 people in 20 states since December.

The recall covers some bags of Gold Medal bleached and unbleached flour, bleached and unbleached Signature Kitchen flour, Gold Medal self-rising flour and Gold Medal Wondra quick-mixing flour. A full list of the recalled flours is listed below and on the General Mills website.

General Mills’ Gold Medal flour is the most widely used flour in the United States, spokesman Mike Siemienas said.

The E. coli outbreak involves E. coli O121, a potentially deadly Shiga toxin-producing variant of the bacteria that can cause cramps, diarrhea that's sometimes bloody, vomiting and on occasion life-threatening complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
