The milling business of American agribusiness Archer Daniels Midland issued a recall for 5 lb bags of Baker’s Corner brand all-purpose flour packaged for ALDI grocery stores after E. coli was detected in a sample of the product by the Rhode Island Department of Health, the company announced in a release Thursday.

Produced at ADM Milling’s plant in Buffalo, NY, the flour was shipped to ALDI stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia. Impacted bags of Baker’s Corner with the lot numbers L18A02 and L18A03 and Best If Used By dates of Dec. 2 and Dec. 3, 2019. 

“ADM Milling is working directly with ALDI, which has already recalled all potentially impacted products from store shelves in the region,” the firm’s release said. “ALDI also recalled all other ADM retail flour products packaged for ALDI in the region as a precaution. No other products or customers are involved in this recall at this time.”

E. coli is a type of bacteria that can be found in food products that causes illness. Those in possession of the Baker’s Corner flour are urged to throw the products away or return it to their local ALDI store.
