King Arthur Flour has expanded their voluntary national recall of specific lots of its Unbleached All-Purpose Flour due to the potential presence of E. coli.
As was stated in the previous recall which was announced in June, the potential contamination was discovered through product sampling, and there have been no confirmed reports of illnesses related to this product.
The flour affected by this voluntary recall is King Arthur’s Unbleached All-Purpose Flour in the 5-pound and 25-pound bags (these larger bags were only sold through Costco stores). It was milled prior to February 2019 at an ADM Milling facility in Buffalo, NY and was distributed through retailers and distributors nationwide, and sold through the company’s website, catalog, and store in Norwich, VT.
A complete list of the Lot Codes and Best Used by Dates affected can be seen on King Arthur’s recall page. To find your product’s Best Used By and Lot Code information, check the bottom of the ingredient side panel of the 5 lb. bag. Both the Best Used By date and the Lot Code must all match in order to be affected by this recall.
Consumers who have flour from any of these affected lots should return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. You may also choose to dispose of the flour and submit a claim for a refund or replacement by clicking on the blue “Recall Assistance” button on King Arthur’s recall page, or by calling the Consumer Hotline at 866-797-9178.
