King Arthur Unbleached All Purpose Flour Recall
June 13, 2019
In cooperation with ADM Milling Company, King Arthur Flour, Inc. of Norwich, VT is recalling 14,218 cases of 5 lb. Unbleached All-Purpose Flour due to the potential presence of Escherichia coli bacteria (E. coli).
The recalled Unbleached All-Purpose Flour (5 lb.) was distributed through retailers and distributors nationwide. The only product affected by this recall is our Unbleached All-Purpose Flour (5 lb.) from these six specific lot codes and three Best Used by Dates, which can be found on the bottom of the side panel, below the nutrition facts panel: BEST USED BY 12/07/19, LOT: L18A07C; BEST USED BY 12/08/19 LOTS: L18A08A, L18A08B; BEST USED BY 12/14/19, LOTS: L18A14A, L18A14B, L18A14C.
E. coli causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.
King Arthur has been informed by ADM Milling Co. that certain wheat used to make these lots of King Arthur flour has been linked to an ongoing outbreak of E. coli infections. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with King Arthur flour.
If you have any of the products listed below, they should be thrown away or returned to your local Big Y for a full refund.
