HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – An unbleached all-purpose flour brand sold at local grocery stores and supermarkets in the Hampton Roads area is being recalled nationally due to possible health risks.

According to the U.S. Food And Drug Administration, the recalled five-pound bags of King Arthur Flour, made by ADM Milling Co., are sold at Target and Walmart. Officials believe that the product is tied to E-Coli outbreak concerns.

While the product itself has not directly been linked to outbreaks, the company is issuing the recall out of precaution.

The FDA says that nearly 114,000 bags of King Arthur flour are being recalled.

“Customers have trusted King Arthur Flour products in their kitchens for over 225 years, and that’s why we have issued this voluntary recall. We remain committed to providing our customers safe and superior products,” said the company in a statement.

Customers with any questions regarding this recall or King Arthur Flour products are encouraged to call the King Arthur Flour Consumer Hotline 7 days a week/24 hours a day at 866.797.9178
