WASHINGTON (WDVM) — ALDI has recalled five-pound bags of its “Bakers Corner All-Purpose Flour,” sold in West Virginia and Pennsylvania as well as nine other states, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
The discount supermarket chain took the flour off the shelves this week after it was found that they could be contaminated with E. coli. Seventeen people have been reported sick and three have been hospitalized in connection to this recall.
The other states affected by the recall are Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island and Vermont.
The CDC advises to throw the recalled flour away, and thoroughly wash any containers that held the flour before using them again.
