Gold Medal Product Recall After Potential Salmonella Contamination
General Mills has announced a voluntary national recall of two, five, and 10-pound bags of its Gold Medal All Purpose Flour, both the bleached and unbleached varieties, due to the potential presence of Salmonella Infantis.
According to General Mills, Salmonella was discovered while sampling the five-pound bag product. The recalled products have a “better if used by” date of March 27, 2024, and March 28, 2024. All other types of Gold Medal Flour are not affected by this recall.
General Mills requests consumers check their pantries and dispose of products included in this recall. Consumers who have had to discard products covered by this recall may contact General Mills Consumer Relations at 1-800-230-8103.
Salmonella Infantis is killed by heat through baking, frying, sautéing, or boiling products made with flour. All surfaces, hands, and utensils should be properly cleaned after contact with flour or dough.
