The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said almost 114,000 bags of King Arthur's unbleached all-purpose flour are being recalled due to E. coli concerns. King Arthur was informed by ADM Milling Co. of the link between the two but in a statement said, "No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with King Arthur flour". If you find King Arthur flour in the grocery store or in your pantry at home, check for this dates and numbers below the nutrition facts to see if it's been recalled.

That's almost 114,000 bags of King Arthur Flour.

A brand of flour sold at retailers nationwide has been recalled over E. coli fears. ADM hasn't answered if those lot Nos. went to other companies besides Aldi and King Arthur.

Products sold through the King Arthur Flour website, Baker's Catalogue or the Baker's Store in Norwich, Vermont are not included in the recall. If there is fever, it is usually less than 101 degrees F. Most people get better within a week.

The symptoms of E. coli infections can include stomach cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting.

The recall has been assigned as a "Class I", which means "it is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death". Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output.
