General Mills is recalling some of its Gold Medal flour because of a salmonella threat, reports CBS News. Affected are 5-pound bags of Unbleached All Purpose Flour with a "better if used by" date of April 20, 2020, and a UPC of 000-16000-19610-0. The company says sample testing turned up "the potential presence" of salmonella, adding that it has not received any reports of illnesses. Consumers can go here for more information on the recall.
