PROVIDENCE — The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that United Natural Foods Incorporated (UNFI) is recalling certain five-pound bags of its Wild Harvest Organic All-Purpose Flour because of the potential presence of E. coli.

The product is unbleached flour with a Code of AA BEST IF USED BY 010820 CC 15:58 and UPC Code 711535509158. An image of the label is attached to this email.

E. coli can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections in infants, older people, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems. The most common symptoms of E. coli are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting, which develop within three or four days of eating contaminated food. The illness usually lasts about a week and most people recover without treatment.

To date, no illness reports have been associated with this recall.

Consumers should check their pantries and dispose of this product, if they have it. Consumers with questions should contact UNFI at 855-423-2630.
