General Mills expands flour recall after new E. coli illnesses found

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KUSI) — General Mills expanded their flour recall Tuesday after more people contracted E. coli illness after consumption.

The flour was initially recalled May 31 after several people reported getting ill after eating products using the flour. Four new confirmed illnesses led General Mills Monday to recall flour from even more production dates.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that eating uncooked dough made with some General Mills flour caused people to get sick. Illnesses have not come from properly cooked dough, according to General Mills.
