Consumers are urged to check their pantries for the recalled flour and dispose of the product. Questions about the recall can be directed to UNFI at 1-855-423-2630, seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CST.

UNFI discovered the E. coli contamination during routine sampling by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The company has not received any reports of illness from the recalled flour. UNFI said it issued the recall “out of an abundance of caution.”

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a warning to consumers not to eat raw flour or uncooked raw dough. Consumers that are concerned about illness from the flour recalls should contact their healthcare provider.

E .coli illness symptoms include bloody diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and abdominal cramps. Most individuals recover within a week. Children, elderly adults, pregnant women, and those with weakened immune systems, in some instances, can develop severe illnesses, such as kidney failure.

E. coli is killed during the process of baking, frying, sautéing, or boiling. Consumers should wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after coming in contact with raw dough or flour. Raw dough or batter should never be eaten.
