MINNEAPOLIS (KNWA/KFTA) — A potential presence of Salmonella led to General Mills recalling multiple bags of Gold Medal Unbleached and Bleached All Purpose Flour with a “better used by” date of March 27, 2024 and March 28, 2024.
Two-, five- and 10-pound bags of the flour were recalled after Salmonella Infantis was found during sampling of a five-pound bag. The recall only affects the two dates, all other types of Gold Medal Flour are not affected.
Buyers are asked to check their pantries and throw away the product affected by this recall. Affected buyers can contact General Mills Consumer Relations at 1-800-230-8103.
According to the CDC, “healthy persons infected with Salmonella Infantis, a bacteria, often experience nausea, diarrhea, fever and abdominal pains.
