Pillsbury Bread Flour recalled over E. coli concerns

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — Bread flour manufactured in New York is being recalled due to a potential E. coli contamination.

The bread flour was manufactured by ADM Milling Co. at their Buffalo New York mill and distributed to ten states including Ohio.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with this product. However, the wheat used to make these two lots of Pillsbury® Best 5 lb. Bread Flour has been linked to E. coli illnesses associated with other flour products produced at the ADM mill in Buffalo.

So far, 17 illnesses have been connected with the outbreak, leading to three hospitalizations.

More than 4,000 cases of the Pillsbury bread flour were distributed to retailers and distributors across Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

The affected product has the following UPC codes, lot codes and Best-If-Used-By dates:
