If you purchased Robin Hood All Purpose Flour with that UPC number, lot codes, and expiration dates, do not use it. Throw it away in a sealed container, or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund. If you aren’t sure whether or not you purchased this product, contact your retailer. If you still aren’t sure, discard the flour.

You should then clean your pantry, because flour can get everywhere in a kitchen. Wipe down items in the pantry and the pantry shelves and drawers. If you decanted the flour into another container, wash that container thoroughly with soap and water before adding more flour.

And this recall is a good reminder not to eat batter or dough before it’s cooked. The only way to destroy this pathogen is to heat it. And never made homemade play dough with uncooked flour.
