American food company General Mills issued a voluntary recall Monday across the U.S. for 5 lb. bags of Glod Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour after some samples of the product tested positive for E.coli O26. 

“This recall is being issued out of an abundance of care as General Mills has not received any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses related to this product,” General Mills said in a company press release. 

The impacted products have a better if used by date of Sept. 6, 2020, have a package UPC of 000-16000-19610-0 and are only in 5 lb. bags. All other Gold Medal brand flour products are not involved in the recall. 

Those in possession of the possibly contaminated flour are urged to throw the products away. 

Earlier this year, General Mills recalled 5 lb bags of Gold Medal Unbleached Flour when Salmonella was discovered in samples.
