King Arthur Flour issued a recall for more than 85,000 bags of all-purpose flour due to E. coli concerns this week.

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.

Five-pound bags of unbleached all-purpose flour from specific lot codes and use-by dates are the only King Arthur products impacted by the recall.

According to the FDA, the recalled products were distributed through retailers and distributors nationwide. 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.

So far, there are no reports of illnesses.

The flour's potential problem comes from the wheat used by ADM Milling, which made the wheat used in the Baker's Corner All-Purpose Flour that supermarket chain Aldi recalled May 23.

As of this evening, the FDA still had not posted any information about what, if any, other companies received flour produced by the implicated ADM Milling factory.

Anyone with these products should throw them out or return them for a refund.

Symptoms of E. coli infection include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.

Most healthy adults recover after a week with E. coli causing a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.
