Hodgson Mill Flour Recalled For Possible E. coli Contamination

Hodgson Mill flour recalled for possible E. coli contamination. Hodgson Mill of Effingham, Illinois is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its Unbleached All Purpose White Wheat Flour sold in 5 pound bags. The potential presence of pathogenic E. coli was found when sampling raw uncooked flour. No reports of illness associated with the consumption of this product have been received to date.

The recalled product is Hodgson Mill Unbleached All Purpose White Wheat Flour sold in 5 pound bags. The UPC number on the product is 0-71518-05009-2. The best by dates printed on the packages are 10-01-2020 and 10-02-2020, and the lot codes are 001042 and 005517. The use by and lot code information are on the bottom back panel of the bag.

This recall is, again, a good reminder not to eat uncooked flour or any products made with raw flour. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after working with flour. Flour is a raw agricultural product and can be contaminated with pathogens just like leafy greens or raw meat. The only way to destroy E. coli bacteria is with heat.

If you purchased this product, do not use it, even if you are going to cook or bake with it. The potential for cross-contamination with the tiny particles of flour is just too large. Throw it away in a sealed container, or take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

This lot of flour was milled at an ADM milling facility in Missouri. It was sold by Hodgson Mill through retailers and distribution centers nationwide and was also sold through the company’s website.
