14,000 cases of King Arthur Flour recalled for possible E.coli
A Vermont-based flour product is under recall for a potential E. coli risk.
King Arthur Flour is voluntarily recalling more than 14,000 cases of its 5 lb. Unbleached All-Purpose Flour due to an ongoing outbreak of bacteria linked to the wheat used in the product.
The company says the recall affects six lot codes and three “Best Used By” dates, both of which can be found on the bottom of the side panel, next to the nutrition facts:
- BEST USED BY 12/07/19 LOT: L18A07C
- BEST USED BY 12/08/19 LOTS: L18A08A, L18A08B
- BEST USED BY 12/14/19 LOTS: L18A14A, L18A14B, L18A14C
No products sold through the King Arthur Flour website, Baker’s Catalogue or the Baker’s Store in Norwich are included in the recall.
King Arthur Flour released a full statement through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday afternoon.
“Consumers who have any of these affected products should not consume them and should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for credit or refund.” The report read, “Consumer safety is our top priority, and therefore, we are voluntarily recalling these specific lots of Unbleached All-Purpose Flour to prevent potential illnesses.”
Costumers with additional questions are asked to contact the company's consumer hotline at 866-797-9178 or visit the King Arthur website.
