It looks like Costco has been affected by the flour recall as they have posted two recalls in their site within the past couple of days. I can’t remember which brand of flour Costco sells, so I am posting all the information here! Please take back any unused portion to your Costco store for a full refund – they still have a satisfaction guarantee!
If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with E. coli O121 may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea.

There have been reported illnesses associated with flour; however, at this time, there have been no confirmed illnesses associated with the products identified in this Food Recall Warning.
