Product Recall: Gold Medal Flour

Product Recall: Gold Medal Flour

St. Louis, September 16, 2019 - In response to a voluntary recall by General Mills, Dierbergs Markets has removed the following products from its shelves due to the potential presence of E. coli O26:

Gold Medal Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, 5 lb. bag
UPC: 16000-19610
Better if Used by Date: 06SEP2020KC

E. coli O26 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. Seniors, the very young, and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness. This recall was issued after the possible presence of the E. coli was discovered during sampling of the five-pound bag product and is being done out of an abundance of caution. General Mills has not received any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses related to this product.

More information on this recall can be found on General Mills' website.

Customers may return the affected product to any Dierbergs for a full refund. Consumers with questions or concerns may contact General Mills Consumer Relations at 1-800-230-8103.
