General Mills recalls select Gold Medal Flour products due to E. coli O121 contamination

Product may be contaminated with E.coli O121

St. Louis, MO, 2016-Jun-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — General Mills is recalling select Gold Medal Flour products because the FDA has alerted the company that the flour has tested positive for E. coli O121. Although most strains of E. coli are harmless, others can make you sick. E. coli O121 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. Seniors, the very young and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to food borne illness.
