Gold Medal five pound bags of flour recalled, could have salmonella
General Mills issued a national-wide recall on their Gold Medal five pound bags of flour with a better if used by date of April 20, 2020 for potential salmonella contamination, the company said in a news release.
No other flour products have been recalled. The contamination was discovered during sampling and is being announced by General Mills “out of an abundance of care,” the company said. Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
In the release, General Mills reminded consumers that flour is not a “ready to eat” product. In order for safe consumption, flour must be cooked or baked in order to kill off illness-inducing bacteria.
General Mills said they have not been contacted by customers reporting illness caused by their flour.
