A product sourced from ADM Milling Company's Buffalo, New York plant and sold at ALSO is being recalled.
The store is recalling Baker's Corner All Purpose Flour sold throughout the Northeastern U.S. due to a potential presence of E. coli.
This product was distributed to select ALDI stores in 11 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia.
The Baker's Corner All Purpose Flour affected by the ADM Milling Co. recall is sold in a 5 lb. bag with the following UPC code: 041498130404.
ALDI, out of caution, has recalled all "best if used by dates" and all lots of Baker's Corner All Purpose Flour products produced by ADM Milling Co. in Buffalo, N.Y. from store shelves in these states.
"If customers have product affected by this voluntary recall, they should discard it immediately or return it to their local store for a full refund," ALDI says. "Consumers with additional questions can contact ADM Milling Co. Customer Service at (800) 422-1688 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT."
"Consumers are reminded to not consume any raw products made with flour. Flour is an ingredient that comes from milling wheat, something grown outdoors that carries with it risks of bacteria which are rendered harmless by baking, frying or boiling. Consumers are reminded to wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after contact with raw dough products or flour, and to never eat raw dough or batter."
"ALDI sincerely regrets any inconvenience and concern this recall may cause."
