NORWICH, VT. — King Arthur Flour, Inc. on Nov. 1 updated its voluntary recall of 5-lb and 25-lb bags of Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, expanding the recall after Archer Daniels Midland Co. said three additional product lot codes were omitted from the original data provided in a release dated Oct. 3.
The additional lot codes and their corresponding “Best Used By” dates are:
- Best Used by Date 12/09/19: Lot codes L18A09A and L18A09C
- Best Used by Date 01/08/20: Lot code A19A08A
King Arthur Flour originally announced the recall on June 13, citing the potential presence of E. coli in flour sourced from an ADM flour mill in Buffalo, N.Y.
The recalled flour was distributed by King Arthur Flour through retailers and distributors nationwide, and sold through the company’s web site, catalogue and store in Norwich.
King Arthur Flour said it has not received any confirmed reports of illnesses to date related to the recalled flour.
