Flour Recall at General Mills Expands – Here is What Has Been Recalled

by Anna Scanlon, Natural Society:

General Mills has recently recalled a large selection of its flours due to an outbreak of E. coli. Although no one has died, 46 people have become infected with E. coli, 13 have been hospitalized, and one person has been diagnosed with kidney failure in connection to the E. coli virus. [1]

General Mills stated:

“It is unknown if we are experiencing a higher prevalence of E. coli in flour than normal, if this is an issue isolated to General Mills’ flour, or if this is an issue across the flour industry. No illnesses have been connected with flour that has been properly baked, cooked or handled.” [1]
