MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – General Mills is expanding its previously announced flour recall to include flour produced in fall of 2015.
The recall, the result of an E. coli outbreak, was announced in May, with about 10 million pounds of flour being affected. Though General Mills did not find the E. coli strain in its flour, they recalled their products as a precaution.
The company announced Friday that the recall was being expanded to flour made earlier that may still be in consumers’ pantries. The expansion is a result of a newly-reported illness that appears to be connected to eating raw dough or batter linked to flour produced in fall of 2015.
