The company General Mills has stated that there will be an expansion of its flour recall. The decision to expand the recall was in response to an announcement from the CDC that four additional people have developed E.coli infections linked to the flour.
There have been 46 cases of E.coli linked to the flour. The most recent case of E.coli illness was reported on June 25.
The E.coli illness can have severe symptoms. The symptoms may include stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and fever. The symptoms of the E.coli illness can last five to seven days. The people who are most susceptible to the E.coli illness are the very old, the very young and those with compromised immune systems.
The flour brands Gold Medal, Wondra and Signature Kitchens are part of the recall. The dates of production for the recalled flour ar November 4, 2015 through February 10, 2016. Any of these brands of flour that were produced during this time period should not be used or consumed.
