Hometown Food Company, in cooperation with ADM Milling, has initiated a voluntary recall of two specific lot codes of its Pillsbury Best 5 lb. Bread Flour due to the potential presence of E. coli. The product was manufactured by ADM Milling, which announced a similar recall last week, at the company’s mill in Buffalo, New York.
Approximately 4,620 cases of the Pillsbury product were distributed to a limited number of retailers and distributors across 10 states. Those who purchased the products in question are urged to discard it or return it to the retail location it was purchased from for a refund. This voluntary recall is being made with the full knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
There have been no reports of any illnesses associated with this product and this recall has been issued out of an abundance of caution. Hometown Food Company has been informed by ADM Milling Co., that certain wheat used to make these two lots of flour have been linked to E. coli illnesses associated with other flour products produced at the ADM mill in Buffalo.
