Recall of Aldi Baker’s Corner Flour For E. coli O26 Expanded

ADM Milling is expanding its recall of Aldi Baker’s Corner Flour for possible E. coli. O26 contamination to include all five pound bags. All five pound bags of this flour currently in distribution are now recalled. The earlier recall was for two specific lots of the flour with a single UPC number.

This flour is linked to an E. coli O26 outbreak that has sickened at least 17 people in eight states. The recall notice states, “The food source of the E.coli strain for all cases remains under investigation, but out of an abundance of caution, ADM is expanding its previous recall notice.” The flour was sold in select stores in these states: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont,  and West Virginia.

ADM Milling is working with ALDI, which has recalled all potentially affected products from store shelves in the region. And ADM Milling is investigating this contamination to try to find the source. The Rhode Island Department of Health found E. coli bacteria while they were testing a five pound bag of the flour.

Flour is not a ready-to-eat product; it is a raw agricultural product that can and has been contaminated with pathogenic bacteria. Do not eat raw cookie dough or cake batter, and do not make homemade play dough. Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces after you work with uncooked flour.

If you purchased any Aldi Baker’s Corner All Purpose flour sold in 5 pound bags, do not use it. Throw it away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can. You can also take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund. Wash y0our hands well with soap and water after handling this product.

It’s a good idea to clean out your pantry with a mild bleach solution after you get rid of the flour. It’s difficult to clean up raw flour because the particles are so fine. And thoroughly clean any container you may have decanted the flour into.
