General Mills Just Recalled 30 Million Pounds Of Food

With all the food recalls these days, it’s hard to keep track of what’s safe to eat and what’s life-threatening. When I discovered General Mills’ newest recall, I vowed to never trust another popular snack brand again.

According to Food Safety News, General Mills Inc. just issued a recall of 30 million pounds of flour due to an ongoing E. coli outbreak.

Forty-one people across 21 states have been confirmed as victims of the outbreak linked to the recalled General Mills flour.

The General Mills Inc. recall of 30 million pounds of flour linked to an ongoing E. coli outbreak continues to cause other companies to recall products, with Continental Mills Inc. now pulling back Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix from retailers nationwide.


“The company was notified by our supplier that their product, a blueberry nugget in the mix is made with a small percentage of flour that was recalled by General Mills because it may be contaminated with E. coli O121,” according to the Continental Mills recall notice on the Food and Drug Administration website.

Only Krusteaz blueberry pancake mix produced between April and June this year is covered by the recall. It was sold in two different sizes:

#1: 28-ounce cartons with best-by date codes between March 30, 2018, and June 16, 2018, and a UPC code of 041449001289

#2: 3.5-pound bags with best-by date codes of April 27, 2018, or April 28, 2018, a UPC code of 041449001487


“Anyone who has developed symptoms of E. coli infection after eating the recalled pancake mix, is encouraged to see a doctor and be tested. E. coli O121 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. The very young, seniors, and those with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.” – Food Safety News
