CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, U.S. — ADM on May 22 announced it has recalled Bakers Corner All Purpose Flour packaged for Aldi at retail locations in the northeastern United States, citing the potential presence of E. coli. The affected product is sold in a 5-pound bag with a “best if used by date” of Dec. 2, 2019.
ADM said the product was sourced from its flour mill in Buffalo, New York, U.S., and was distributed to select Aldi stores in 11 U.S. states: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia.
“Aldi takes the safety and integrity of the products it sells seriously,” Aldi said. “If customers have product affected by this voluntary recall, they should discard it immediately or return it to their local store for a full refund.”
Aldi directed consumers with additional questions to contact ADM Milling Co.
Earlier this year Hometown Food Co. recalled a limited lot of 5-pound bags of Pillsbury Unbleached All Purpose Flour due to possible contamination with Salmonella. General Mills, Inc. also this year recalled 5-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached Flour after Salmonella was detected during the sampling of the product.
