Tens of thousands of cases of Pillsbury flour have been voluntarily recalled over a possible Salmonella contamination.

The USDA tweeted out the recall details earlier this week, warning those with Pillsbury Unbleached All Purpose Flour at home not to consume the product.

According to the tweet, home bakers everywhere could be sickened with Salmonella if they use these Pillsbury flour products.


All of the possibly affected bags of flour have lot codes 8 292 and 8 293 with Best If used By Dates of April 19, 2020 and April 20, 2020.

We've all been warned of the dangers of eating raw cookie dough already, but the US Food and Drug Administration used this recent recall to remind people that they should never eat raw cookie dough because the flour could contain bacteria that may make them ill.

Those who have bags of recalled flour are asked to throw them away or return them to the store of purchase for a full refund.

It should be noted that no illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall and the company hopes to keep it that way by voluntarily recalling all of the possibly affected bags.
