NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — The FDA says Vermont flour maker King Arthur Flour has announced the voluntary recall of 14,000 cases of all-purpose flour because it may be contaminated with E. coli.

The unbleached flour is in 5 lb. bags with “best used by” dates of December 7, 8, and 14 this year.

There have been no reports of illnesses related to the flour.

The company released a statement saying, "Consumer safety is our top priority, and therefore, we are voluntarily recalling these specific lots of Unbleached All-Purpose Flour to prevent potential illnesses. We are committed to educating and reminding consumers that flour is not ready-to-eat, and anything made with flour must be baked before eating.”
