Gold Medal Flour Recalled Due to Possible Salmonella

General Mills has voluntarily recalled certain bags of its Gold Medal Unbleached and Bleached All-Purpose Flour. The recall is due to the possibility of salmonella contamination. The affected bags come in two-pound, five-pound, and 10-pound sizes, and are labeled with a “Better if Used By” date of either March 27 or March 28, 2024. Consumers are advised to check their bags and return them for a full refund if they match the affected products.

General Mills has announced a recall of specific flour products. The affected items include Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour in 5LB and 10LB.

Packages with UPCs 000-16000-19610 and 000-16000-19580, respectively. Also included are Gold Medal Bleached All Purpose Flour in 2LB and 5LB packages with UPCs 000-16000-10710 and 000-16000-10610. The recall does not extend to any other Gold Medal Flour products. Customers are advised to check their flour packages and dispose of any affected products.

A spokesperson from General Mills stated that they are voluntarily recalling specific lots of Gold Medal Unbleached and Bleached All Purpose Flour. This decision was made as food safety is their top priority. The statement was given to USA Today.

Consumers who have recently bought Gold Medal-brand flour are advised to check their pantries and examine the UPC and “Best if Used By” dates on flour bags. General Mills requests that individuals dispose of any bags with potentially affected UPCs. If you have already discarded the recalled products, contact General Mills Consumer Relations at 1-800-230-8103.

The company advises against consuming raw products made with flour, including cookie dough, due to the risk of Salmonella bacteria. Baking, boiling, frying, or sauteing heat can kill the bacteria before consumption. Kitchen surfaces, worktops, and utensils that come in contact with uncooked flour or raw dough should be cleaned thoroughly.

Michigan’s Lipari Foods has voluntarily recalled its ground cumin due to potential salmonella contamination. The affected product is a six-ounce plastic tub labeled “Ground Cumin,” “Product of India,” and “Distributed by Lipari Foods.” These containers have lot number 220914601, the UPC 094776212620, and an expiration date of 09/2024. Lipari Foods issued the recall last week.
