Getty Flour 10/7/19

Following flour recalls from General Mills and King Arthur Flour, another flour brand—Robin Hood Flour—is being recalled for possible E. coli contamination. 

Specific lots of the J.M. Smucker Company-owned brand issued the recall out of an “abundance of caution” and says it hasn’t received any reports of illness related to the product. 

The recall applies to five-pound bags of Robin Hood All Purpose Flour with a UPC case code of 0 51500 18010 2 and a UPC item code of 0 51500 18010 5.

The lot codes on the affected bags are: 

  • 8350 513
  • 8351 513
  • 8354 513
  • 8355 513

The Best If Used By dates on the affected bags are: 

  • 6/16/2020
  • 6/17/2020
  • 6/20/2020
  • 6/21/2020

The flour was distributed and sold in the U.S. at a variety of retailers. Bags sold in Canada are not affected, according to a statement from The J.M. Smucker Company. 

You should never consume raw products made with flour, the CDC warns. Symptoms of E. coli infection include diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and nausea. 

If you have one of the possibly-contaminated products, you should dispose of it immediately.
