The J.M. Smucker Company has issued a voluntary recall for specific lots of Robin Hood® All Purpose Flour that was sold in the U.S. because it may be contaminated with E. coli.

No illnesses have been reported, but infections with E. coli can be very serious or deadly. No other Robin Hood® products are being recalled at this time.

The recalled flour items are 5-pound bags of Robin Hood® All Purpose Flour with Lot Codes 8350513, 8351513, 8354513, and 8355513, Best-By Dates of 6/16/2020, 6/17/2020, 6/20/2020, and 6/21/2020, and UPC Code 0 51500 18010 2 (case) or UPC Code 0 51500 18010 5 (item).

The recall came just one day after King Arthur Flour recalled 5-lb and 25-lb bags of All-Purpose Flour due to a possible risk of E. coli contamination.

The symptoms of an E. coli illness may include sudden diarrhea (often bloody) and abdominal cramps. Most people recover within a week. However, some people develop hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a severe illness which may cause kidney failure.
