Pillsbury Unbleached All-Purpose Flour Recall
A Pillsbury Flour Recall has been issued for two lots of Pillsbury Unbleached All-Purpose Flour due to salmonella. The recall focuses on the brand’s 5-pound packages of flour with lot codes of “8 292” and “8 293″ and use-by dates of Apr. 19, 2020 and Apr. 20, 2020.
Pillsbury’s Parent Company, Hometown Food Company, has said that roughly 12,245 cases of the flour were distributed for sale at a limited number of stores nationwide.
Luckily, no illnesses have been reported due to this recall, the company said. Though, Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain and vomiting.
Consider The Consumer reminds you to never eat raw flour, such as in unbaked cookie dough, and to wash all surfaces that have come into contact with raw flour or dough.
What Can I Do?
If you have purchased any packages of flour under the recall, throw the flour out or return it to the store where it was purchased to receive coupons for replacement packages.
More information about the recall is available on the Hometown Food Company website, or by calling 800-767-4466.
