PHOENIX — Two cases of E. coli have been reported in Arizona after a 20-state outbreak that has been linked to General Mills flour products.
A total of 38 people nationwide have been sickened since December 2015. Ten people have been hospitalized. There have been no deaths reported.
The CDC’s regulatory officials believe that flour produced at General Mills’ Kansas City, Missouri facility is likely the source of the outbreak but the investigation is ongoing.
General Mills is recalling 10 million pounds of flour out of “an abundance of caution.”
The recalled varieties include Gold Medal flour, Wondra flour and Signature Kitchens which may have been sold at any Safeway, Albertsons, Jewel, Shaws, Vons, United, Randalls, and Acme.
