King Arthur Flour Recall [US]

US/Silver Spring: King Arthur Flour recalls some Flour due to polyurethane material hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/i1XOA

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm340872.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the recalled Flour contains small (7 to 9 millimeter) blue polyurethane balls used in the flour sifting process. The balls have a smooth surface, reportedly with no sharp edges and are made from a food grade material. Due to their bright blue color and size (about half the diameter of a US 10 cent piece), they are easily seen in the Flour.
