King Arthur Flour has announced a voluntary recall of unbleached all-purpose flour due to the potential presence of E. coli bacteria.

This is an expansion of the recall announced on June 13.

The company says it has not been notified of any confirmed reports of illness related to the product, but the bacteria was discovered through testing.

The flour was milled at an ADM facility in Buffalo, NY, and sold through retailers and distributors nationwide, as well as through King Arthur Flour's website, catalog, and its store in Norwich, VT.

According to the USDA, anyone who has the affected products should throw them away and submit a claim for a refund or replacement. You can also call King Arthur Flour's Consumer Hotline at 866-797-9178 to submit your claim.

On its website, King Arthur Flour says:

Bakers have trusted King Arthur Flour products in their kitchens for over 225 years and because of that trust we have issued this voluntary recall.
