King Arthur Flour E. coli Lawyer Update: Additional Lot Codes Recalled Due to Potential E. coli Contamination.

King Arthur Flour Inc. announced on November 1, 2019, that they would be expanding their recall to include 3 additional lot numbers due to the risk of potential E. coli O26 contamination. The 3 additional lot codes of Unbleached All-Purpose Flour 5 lb. were originally omitted from the data which was provided to the press on October 3, 2019.

The additional lot codes being recalled and their “Best Used By” dates are as followed:

  • Lot codes L18A09A & L18A09C, Best Used by Date 12/09/19.
  • Lot code A19A08A, Best Used by Date 01/08/20.

King Arthur Flour Inc. went on to state that to date they have not received any reports of people falling ill from the recalled products. The company has stated that their customer’s safety is their top priority, which is why they are advising customers who have any of the recalled items in their pantries to dispose of them in a safe manner or to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.   In a warning, howevr, one national E. coli lawyer, Ron Simon, warned that illnesses are often not reported or identified right away, and hence it is too early to know if the recall was able to prevent human illnesses.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have advised all consumers to avoid consuming the raw flour; cookie dough or batter should not be eaten without it been cooked properly. The CDC is also reminding everyone to wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after contact with raw dough products or flour.

  1. coli O26, the second most common form of food borne Shiga toxin-producing e. coli, right after E. coli O157:H7, has symptoms that may include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea which can at times be bloody, and vomiting. Symptoms may begin from 3 to 4 days after ingesting the contaminated product. In most cases, people can recover without any medical treatments within a week of being ill but some more severe cases symptoms may develop into a serious illness called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS can result in kidney failure, stroke, and even death. Ron Simon, a national E. coli lawyer, stated “E. coli O26 is one of the non-O157 serogroups that most often cause illness in the United States. The non-O157 STEC are not nearly as well understood, partly because current protocols do not test for them. The failure to test for non-O157 STEC is due in large part to the fact that such serotypes are difficult to detect.”

Actualización de un abogado de E. coli: La compañía King Arthurs Flour retira códigos de lote adiciónales debido a posible contaminación por E. coli.

King Arthur Flour Inc. anunció el 1 de noviembre de 2019, que ampliarían su retiro de productos para incluir 3 números de lote adicionales debido al riesgo de una posible contaminación por E. coli O26. Los 3 códigos de lote adicionales de Harina todo uso sin blanquear 5 libras fueron originalmente omitidos de los datos que se proporcionaron a la prensa el 3 de octubre de 2019.

Los códigos de lote adicionales que se están recuperando y sus fechas “Mejor utilizados por” son los siguientes:

  • Códigos de lote L18A09A & L18A09C, Mejor utilizado por fecha 12/09/19.
  • Código de lote A19A08A, Mejor utilizado por fecha 01/08/20.

King Arthur Flour Inc. ha afirmando que hasta la fecha no han recibido ningún reporte de personas enfermas de los productos retirados. La empresa ha declarado que la seguridad de sus clientes es su máxima prioridad, por lo que están aconsejando a los clientes que tienen cualquiera de los artículos retirados en sus despensas que se deshagan de ellos de forma segura o que los devuelvan al lugar de compra para un reembolso completo. Los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) han aconsejado a todos los consumidores que eviten consumir la harina cruda; la masa o harina no se debe comer sin que se haya cocinado correctamente. Los CDC también están recordando a todos que se laven las manos, las superficies de trabajo y los utensilios a fondo después del contacto con productos de masa cruda o harina.

Los síntomas de E. coli O26 pueden incluir calambres estomacales graves, diarrea que a veces puede ser sangrante y vómitos. Los síntomas pueden comenzar de 3 a 4 días después de la ingesta del producto contaminado. En la mayoría de los casos, las personas pueden recuperarse sin ningún tratamiento médico dentro de una semana de estar enfermas, pero algunos síntomas de casos más graves pueden convertirse en una enfermedad grave llamada Síndrome Uremico Hemolítico (HUS). El HUS puede provocar insuficiencia renal, accidente cerebrovascular e incluso la muerte. Ron Simon, un abogado nacional de E. coli, declaró “E. coli O26 es uno de los serogrupos no-O157 que más a menudo causan enfermedades en los Estados Unidos. El STEC no-O157 no se entiende tan bien, en parte porque los protocolos actuales no prueban para ellos. La falta de pruebas para el STEC no-O157 se debe en gran parte al hecho de que estos serotipos son difíciles de detectar.”

Flour E.coli Lawyer Update: King Arthurs Flour Recall

Following Aldi’s Baker Corners’ flour recall last month the King Arthur flour brand has issued a recall on over 14,000 cases of 5-pound bags of Unbleached All-Purpose Flour.

King Arthur Flour Brand issued the recall after being informed by ADM Milling Co. that certain wheat used to make their flour had been linked to an ongoing outbreak of E. coli infections. On May 24 the CDC stated that they would be investigating a multistate outbreak of E.coli O26 infections linked to the flour packaged by ADM Milling Co.

  • King Arthur website
  • Bakers Catalogue
  • Bakers Store in Norwich, VT.

The FDA has yet to inform if any other companies have received flour produced by DM Milling factory – Flour E. Coli Lawyer Ron Simon will be monitoring the recalls and potential illnesses related to the presence of E. coli in flour.

Because the used by dates on the King Arthur flour brand recalls are all on December it is advised to anyone who still has a King Arthur flour brand at home outside of their original packaging to use caution and dispose of it.

Flour E. Coli Lawyer Update: ADM Milling recalls another batch of flour for possible health risks

According to flour e. coli lawyer Ron Simon, the potential reach of a recent flour e. coli recall has grown, a s expected.  Now, King Arthur Flour has recalled its 5-pound Unbleached All-Purpose Flour after being informed by its supplier, ADM Milling, that the wheat may be contaminated with e. coli. ADM Milling was also involved in the recent recall of Baker’s Corner All Purpose Flour out of concern that the flour may cause potential health risks for consumers.

King Arthur Flour, based in Norwich, Vermont, and ADM Milling Company are recalling 14,218 cases of the 5-pound bags of Unbleached All-Purpose Flour that was distributed through retailers and distributors nationwide because of the potential presence of e. coli in the flour. The recalled King Arthur Flour includes:

  • BEST USED BY 12/08/19 LOTS: L18A08A, L18A08B
  • BEST USED BY 12/14/19 LOTS: L18A14A, L18A14B, L18A14C

ADM Milling Company informed King Arthur that certain wheat used to make these specific lots of flour has been linked to an ongoing outbreak of e. coli infections. According to flour e. coli lawyer Ron Simon, E. coli causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.

Consumers who have 5-pounds of King Arthur Flour in their homes should check the best used by dates and lot numbers. Recalled flour should not be consumed, as it may cause adverse health issues, but should be disposed of properly or returned to the store where it was purchased.
