General Mills is voluntarily recalling Gold Medal and Signature Kitchen brands of flour because of a possible link to E. Coli.

To date, the E. coli strain has NOT been found in any of these products, but they want to make sure they prevent any cases. Here is what General Mills said in their press release:

"While attempting to track the cause of the illness, CDC found that approximately half of the individuals reported making something homemade with flour at some point prior to becoming ill. Some reported using a General Mills brand of flour.

At General Mills, the safety of our products is our top priority. While have not found any presence of E. coli O121 in any General Mills flour products or in the flour manufacturing facility, and we have not been contacted directly by any consumer reporting confirmed illnesses related to these products, we want to take an active part in helping to prevent food borne illnesses."
