General Mills is recalling select Gold Medal Flour products because the FDA has alerted the company that the flour has tested positive for E. coli O121.
Although most strains of E. coli are harmless, others can make you sick. E. coli O121 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. Seniors, the very young and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.
Schnucks customers are urged to check for:
4.25 lb. Gold Medal All Purpose Flour
Better if used by: 21MAY2017KC; 03JUN2017KC; 01AUG7KC; 20AUG7KC; 20AUG7KC
5 lb. Gold Medal Unbleached Flour
Better if used by: 19MAY2017KC through 24MAY2017KC; 11JUN2017KC; 12JUN2017KC; 14AUG7KC; 19AUG7KC
Schnucks customers may return any affected product to their nearest store for a full refund. Those with questions may contact the General Mills Consumer Relations team at 1-800-230-8103 or the Schnucks Consumer Affairs department at 314-994-4400 or 1-800-264-4400.
