King Arthur flour recall in multistate E. coli outbreak

More flour is being recalled in an E. coli outbreak that has sickened more than a dozen people in eight states.

The recalled product was distributed through retailers and distributors nationwide, including Walmart.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in late May said 17 people across eight states reported being sickened after eating flour.

The flour, made by ADM, was sold in several states including, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia.

Baking, frying or boiling will kill the bacteria, but consumers should also wash their hands, work surfaces and utensils after they come in contact with raw flour, the company said.

The company said those with questions can call ADM Milling Customer Service at 800-422-1688 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central time.
