Flour Recall in Canada

A nationwide recall of flour in Canada has led to a class-action lawsuit. The recall is due to 26 cases of E. coli including six hospitalizations, but no deaths.

This large recall is another reminder that flour is a raw food product. After handling flour, always wash your hands and clean surfaces and equipment thoroughly. Baking and cooking flour will also kill E. coli. Do not consume raw dough products such as cookie dough and cake batter.
