Stop & Shop has called for a recall of all five-pound bags of King Arthur all-purpose flour, according to a voicemail Stop & Shop relayed to Islanders. 

The flour is being recalled due to a potential E. coli contamination. The use-by dates for the flour of most concern are between Dec. 4, 2019, and Jan. 15, 2020.

Customers may return the product to the store with a receipt for a full refund, according to information from Stop & Shop. 

Jennifer Brogan, a Stop & Shop spokesperson, told The Times in an email that the recall is for wherever the product is sold, not just Stop & Shop.

For more information, consumers are urged to call 800-995-5049.


    • Looks like King Arthur is getting away with selling contaminated flour and not having to buy it back. Granted, the risk should be pretty low; not too much flour is consumed raw.
