MINNEAPOLIS — General Mills is voluntarily recalling some bags of its Gold Medal Unbleached Flour because of Salmonella concerns.

The 5-pound bags have a “better if used by” date of April 20, 2020 and the UPC code 000-16000-19610-0. Customers should discard the product.

The company says it discovered Salmonella during sampling of the product, but it has not received “any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses.”

General Mills says all other types of Gold Medal Flour are not affected.

Salmonella, the most common cause of food poisoning, can lead to fever, diarrhea, nausea and abdominal pain.

Keep track of active Salmonella outbreaks through the Centers for Disease Control.
