King Arthur Flour E. coli O26 Recall Updated To Include More Lot Codes

The King Arthur Flour E. coli O26 recall has been updated to include more lot codes. The original King Arthur Flour E. coli O26 recall was issued on June 13, 2019, and was updated on October 3, 2019 to include more products. No reports of confirmed illnesses have been received to date in connection with this recall.

King Arthur Flour E. coli O26 Recall Updated To Include More Lot Codes

The additional lot codes and corresponding “Best Used By” dates of their Unbleached All-Purpose Flour in 5 pound packages are Best Used by Date 12/09/19 with lot codes L18A09A and L18A09C; and Best Used by Date 01/08/20 with lot code A19A08A. This new information only applies to “Best Used BY” dates already listed in the previous release. No additional Best Used By Dates are introduced as a result of these three updated lot codes.

If you have any of these new lot codes with the corresponding “Best Used By” dates, throw the flour away. If you have decanted flour into another continuer and no longer have the product label, throw it away in a sealed container. You can also take the flour back to the store where you bought it for a refund.

This recall is, again, a good reminder that flour is a raw agricultural product and should never be consumed without thorough cooking. That means do not make recipes that call for uncooked flour. Do not make play dough like products for your children with uncooked flour.

And be careful when working with flour; clean areas where the flour came into contact with surfaces with soap and water. Clean utensils and wash your hands carefully after you work with raw flour. E. coli O26 is only destroyed through baking, frying, sautéing, or boiling products made with flour.
