Strange Secondary Recall for Trout Made with General Mills Flour

A strange recall has been issued for trout filets that were apparently made with recalled General Mills flour. That flour was recalled this summer after at least 63 people in 24 states were sickened with E. coli O121 and O26 that were linked to that product. General Mills issued three different recalls over the summer, and five secondary recalls were issued from corporations that made products with the flour.

Recall Signs 3

The only retail facility to issue a recall is Schnucks. The FDA does not have any notice of this recall on their site as of October 10, 2016.

A press release from Clear Spring Foods, issued on October 7, 2016 was published in EPR Retail News. That notice states that Sun-Dried Tomato & Roasted Garlic Trout was recalled because the flour used in the breading may be contaminated with E. coli O121.

There have been no reports of any illnesses associated with the consumption of this product to date. The press release states that any Schucks customers who bought that product between May 27, 2016 and October 6, 2016 from the store’s seafood department should not eat it, but return it to the store for a refund. A notice is also posted about this recall on the web site. No UPC numbers or any other information was posted about the product recalled.
