More than 4,600 packets of bread flour from Pillsbury Best in ten states have been recalled due to a potential E. coli contamination. This flour is made by the ADM Milling Company and sold by the Hometown Food Company.
According to the company, there have been no reports of people getting sick and that the recall was done as a precautionary measure.
E. Coli Infections are not Pleasant
As noted on the FDA website, the seriousness of the E. coli infections differs from person to person, but there are some symptoms which are most common. These include diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach cramps.
The symptoms usually develop 3 to 4 days after the germ has been ingested. The recovery takes a week or so.
Unfortunately, though in rare cases, the person may develop a severe disease due to such an infection and it is known as HUS and trigger stroke, kidney failure, and even death!
Children, elderly people, pregnant women, and those with comprised immunity have a higher risk of foodborne disease.
In case you are feeling ill or are worried about a disease, it is crucial to consult your doctor as soon as possible to get the right treatment.
