    Nope no Gold Medal here, nor that other brand. I buy the cheap flour and sift it twice. Works same as the more expensive flour then.

      Check that list. It is all on there. Shows product ID and size, brand that needs to be not used. Read the article, it is close to end of it.

    I don’t buy gold medal flour. I buy generic. It works better.

    Why am I just now hearing this?
    I have had this 3 times in the last year.
    I don’t know the dates on the bags I used.
    But I have used gold medal for all my baking.

    Hello people if it was that dangerous they would have to do a mandatory recall sometimes these things are stupid it’s actually an old post

    I have a 2# that I have had fairly long time and the UPC is right ( which it would be ) but there is no date on it anywhere

    Every recall expands so just to be safe… return it or dump it… or make sure what ever you use it for is cooked.

      ????IDK in another article this was posted …. “State and federal authorities have been researching 38 occurrences of illnesses across 20 states related to a specific type of E. coli O121, between Dec.21, 2015, and May 3, 2016,” according to a news release from General Mills.

      “While attempting to track the cause of the illness, CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) found that approximately half of the individuals reported making something homemade with flour at some point prior to becoming ill. Some reported using a General Mills brand of flour.”

      ………..saying half the people ate something homemade with flour… well thats true all year…
