PhotoGeneral Mills is recalling its Gold Medal, Wondra, and Signature Kitchens flour products, sold in Safeway, Albertsons, Jewel, Shaws, Vons, United, Randalls and Acme stores.

 

The products may be contaminated with E. coli O121.

 

To date, E. coli O121 has not been found in any General Mills flour products or in the flour manufacturing facility and the company has not been contacted directly by any consumer reporting confirmed illnesses related to these products.

 

Authorities say there have been researching 38 occurrences of illnesses across 20 states related to a specific type of E. coli O121 between December 21, 2015, and May 3, 2016. Approximately half of the individuals reported making something homemade with flour at some point prior to becoming ill, with some saying they used a General Mills brand of flour.
