Additional Background:
Guidance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) continues to warn that consumers should refrain from eating any raw products made with Flour. E. coli O121 is eliminated by heat through baking, frying, sautéing or boiling products made with flour but all surfaces, hands and utensils should be thoroughly cleaned after contact with recalled Baking Flour or its Dough.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled General Mills Baking Flours, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Flour to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

Please note: other Baking Flour or products make from Baking Flour have been recalled for similar reasons, specifically suspected E. coli O121 contamination. To see all recalls and notifications related to this matter, please search for “Flour” using the Search Box at the top of this page.

Also please note: this recall is an expansion of an existing recall that includes additional batch/lots and production dates of the same General Mills Baking Flours. To see all notifications regarding this recall, please search for “General Mills” using the Search Box at the top of this page.
