King Arthur Flour

Heads up Costco shoppers! This expanded flour recall may affect you!

King Arthur Flour has expanded their voluntary national recall of specific lots of its Unbleached All-Purpose Flour due to the potential presence of E. coli.

As was stated in the previous recall which was announced in June, the potential contamination was discovered through product sampling, and there have been no confirmed reports of illnesses related to this product.


King Arthur Flour

The flour affected by this voluntary recall is King Arthur’s Unbleached All-Purpose Flour in the 5-pound and 25-pound bags (these larger bags were only sold through Costco stores). It was milled prior to February 2019 at an ADM Milling facility in Buffalo, NY and was distributed through retailers and distributors nationwide, and sold through the company’s website, catalog, and store in Norwich, VT.


King Arthur lot code

A complete list of the Lot Codes and Best Used by Dates affected can be seen on King Arthur’s recall page. To find your product’s Best Used By and Lot Code information, check the bottom of the ingredient side panel of the 5 lb. bag. Both the Best Used By date and the Lot Code must all match in order to be affected by this recall.

Consumers who have flour from any of these affected lots should return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. You may also choose to dispose of the flour and submit a claim for a refund or replacement by clicking on the blue “Recall Assistance” button on King Arthur’s recall page, or by calling the Consumer Hotline at 866-797-9178.

    That doesn’t make me happy, I bought that flour many times and I just pack it in the gallon ziplocks and freeze it so I have no idea what the package says 🙁

      I’ve started cutting out the best by date & lot info from the packaging and tape it to my container.

    Ohhh man! This is ridiculous & very upsetting.

    As long as you cook the flour e coli die s at 170F.

      Yes, but to me it’s not worth the risk. The flour can get on the counters and my kids are notorious for sampling raw pie dough (even when I tell them not to.) Cross contamination into items that aren’t being baked can easily occur, then you have to be diligent about disinfecting surfaces.
