General Mills Likely Source of Multistate E.coli Infections

After more than three dozen reported cases of STEC O121 (Shiga toxin-producing E. coli O121) infections, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and local health agencies found General Mills Flour to be a possible source of the outbreak.

General Mills flour products that may be potentially linked to the outbreak include Gold Medal flour, Wondra flour, and Signature Kitchens flour (sold in Safeway, Albertsons, Jewel, Shaws, Vons, United, Randalls, and Acme).

At this point, this outbreak has affected forty-six people over twenty-one states. Thirteen of those sickened have been hospitalized with E. coli infection.

On July 1, 2016, General Mills expanded its recall to include additional lots of Gold Medal Flour, Signature Kitchens Flour, and Gold Medal Wondra Flour. A list of all the recalled flours and how to identify them is available on the Advice to Consumers page.

Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC O121) was isolated from samples of General Mills flour collected from the homes of ill people in Arizona, Colorado, and Oklahoma.

General Mills Flour Outbreak Recall

On May 31, 2016, General Mills recalled several different sizes and varieties of Gold Medal Flour, Gold Medal Wondra Flour, and Signature Kitchens Flour due to possible E. coli contamination.
Consumers should bake items made with raw dough or batter before eating them. Do not taste raw dough or batter.

About E. coli

Escherichia coli or E. coli is a type of bacterium that lives in the intestines of healthy humans and animals. Some strains of E. coli are capable of producing a powerful toxin, known as Shiga toxin, and can cause severe, life-threatening illness.

Symptoms of E. coli

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) symptoms of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) infection include severe abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting. The diarrhea may become bloody and can lead to dehydration. There is usually little or no fever. The infection (and its symptoms) will vary from individual to individual, ranging from a mild to a life-threatening illness.

The CDC reports that symptoms of E. coli food poisoning typically begin 3-4 days after eating a contaminated food; however, symptoms may occur anywhere from 1 to 10 days following pathogen exposure.
