Affected products include 22 ounce bags of Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods Organic Amaranth Flour, which feature a sell-by date of Nov. 26, 2015 and UPC code 0 39978 00911 1.

The recalled flour was distributed through retailers and distributors from June 11, 2014, thru August 7, 2014, in the following states: CA, FL, MI, ND, N, NY, OH, OR, TX, and WA.

While the flour is about 2.5 years expired, it is not uncommon for it to remain on store shelves and in consumers’ homes for years. Therefore, Bob’s Red Mill issued the recall “out of an abundance of caution,” FDA said.

Signs and symptoms of a salmonella infection (salmonellosis) include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Diarrhea (sometimes bloody)
  • Fever
  • Headache

In otherwise healthy individuals, these symptoms generally subside in a week or less. However, infants and children are at an increased risk of severe infection because their immune systems haven’t fully developed.
