General Mills flour


C.D.C. investigates flour recall

A total of 17 people were hospitalized, and 1 person developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure, but no deaths were reported, as part of a multistate outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) infections.

Epidemiologic, laboratory and traceback evidence indicated that flour produced at a General Mills facility in Kansas City was the likely source of the outbreak, which the C.D.C. said infected 63 people in 24 states.
