Aldi and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are expanding a recent flour recall.
All 5-pound bags of Baker’s Corner All Purpose Flour sold in 11 states are now being recalled because of the potential for E. coli contamination. This expansion follows a previous recall of bags with only specific label information.
The FDA said the E. coli strain found when a bag of flour was tested has been linked to 17 illnesses in eight states.
The agency said the recalled bags were manufactured for Aldi at a flour mill in Buffalo, New York. The recall includes products in stores in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.
If you have one of these bags of flour, the FDA said throw it out, or return it to the store for a full refund.
