(WKOW) — General Mills is voluntarily recalling its five-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached Flour because of the potential presence of salmonella.
The food company discovered the problem during a sampling of the product. Leaders have chosen to issue the recall out of an “abundance of care.” There have been no consumer reports of illnesses related to the product.
The recall only affects the five-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached Flour with a better if used by date of April 20, 2020. Below is the code date you will see if your flour is impacted:

“This recall does not involve any other flour products, and we are continuing to educate consumers that flour is not a ‘ready to eat’ ingredient. Anything you make with flour must be cooked or baked before eating,” said Jim Murphy, President of General Mills Meals and Baking Division.
If you have the flour in your pantries you are asked to throw it away. You can contact General Mills Consumer Relations at 1-800-230-8103 for more information.
