Popular Baking Product Recalled for Potentially Deadly Contamination

March 12, 2019Mar 12, 2019

Multiple grocery chains are reporting that Pillsbury Co. has just recalled some of their famous flour. The popular baking products are said to potentially contain possible salmonella contamination.

Oddly enough, Pillsbury has yet to announce the recall or inform the Food and Drug Administration of a product infection. The only reports are coming from grocery chains that are informing customers of the recall. They are reporting the following recalls:

Publix — GTIN # 0 5150022241 3, Lot Code numbers 8 293 or 8 292, and Best If Used By Dates of APR 19 2020 or APR 20 2020

Winn-Dixie — UPC number 0 5150022241 6, Best If Used By Date of APR 19 2020, and Lot code numbers 8292 or 8293.

"The notice posted by Publix says more than 12,000 cases of the flour are subject to the recall but does not say how many packages are in each case. The Winn-Dixie recall notice says there haven’t been any reports of any illnesses associated with the recalled flour," reported Food Safety News.

The recall is hitting 5-pound bags of "Pillsbury Unbleached All-Purpose Flour." Publix is reporting that the flour was shipped to retailers and grocery distributors around the nation.

“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund,” according to the Publix recall notice.

Make sure and check your pantry to see if you have any of the affected four!
