Grocers say Pillsbury flour has been recalled because of Salmonella risk | Food Safety News

Two grocery chains are reporting that the parent company of the Pillsbury Co. has initiated a nationwide recall of flour packaged under the iconic brand because of possible Salmonella contamination.

However, neither Pillsbury nor its owner Hometown Food Co. had posted the recall on their websites, or with the Food and Drug Administration, as of last night. 

The Publix and Winn-Dixie grocery chains both posted the recall information on their websites Friday. Neither chain reported how or when the possible contamination was discovered. They also did not report when they were notified about the problem. 

The notice posted by Publix says more than 12,000 cases of the flour are subject to the recall, but does not say how many packages are in each case. The Winn-Dixie recall notice says there haven’t been any reports of any illnesses associated with the recalled flour.

Both grocery chains are reporting 5-pound bags of “Pillsbury Unbleached All Purpose Flour” are affected by the recall. Publix reports the flour was shipped to retailers and distributors nationwide.

“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund,” according to the Publix recall notice.

The Winn-Dixie recall notice includes a similar warning. Winn-Dixie says consumers with questions about the recalled flour can contact the Southeastern Grocers Customer Call Center 866-946-6349.

Consumers can use the following information to determine whether they have the flour in their homes:

  • Publix — GTIN # 0 5150022241 3, Lot Code numbers 8 293 or 8 292, and Best If Used By Dates of APR 19 2020 or APR 20 2020
