Gold Medal Flour Recalled by General Mills

The product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that General Mills has issued a nationwide recall of 5-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour with a specific use-by date over concerns the product could be contaminated with E. coli, the company announced Monday.

"This recall only affects this one date code of Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour five-pound bags," General Mills said in a statement. "All other types of Gold Medal Flour are not affected by this recall."

The recalled flour has a better if used by date of Sept. 6, 2020 and a UPC code of 016000 196100, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall notice. The recall includes 600,000 pounds of flour, according to USA Today.

The presence of E. coli O26 was found during sample testing and no illnesses have been reported, General Mills said.

The company recommends customers check pantries and throw out bags matching the best if used by date. Customers with recalled flour may call General Mills at 800-230-8103.

E. coli bacteria can cause severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting, and some people may have a fever, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The Gold Medal recall follows an outbreak of E. coli earlier this year that included four other flour brands: Brand Castle, Pillsbury Best, King Arthur and Aldi Baker's Corner. That outbreak, which has been declared over by the CDC, sickened 21 people in nine states. Three people were hospitalized.

If you or a loved one has suffered losses due to consuming this, or any, General Mills product, do not hesistate to contact Breslin and Breslin. You may be entitled to compensation.
