You're going to want to check your pantries, as a popular brand of pancake mix is being recalled over concerns of E. coli.
Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix made between April and June 2016 could contain E. coli O121, according to a press release from the Food and Drug Administration.
A supplier informed Continental Mills, the mix's maker, that the blueberry nugget used in the mix may contain some flour that was already recalled by General Mills earlier this year. The flour was contaminated with E. coli.
The bacteria is eliminated by heat used in cooking but the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn that you shouldn't eat raw products made with flour.
If you have recently bought Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix in the 28-ounce carton with a best by date between March 30, 2018 and June 16, 2018 and has a UPC code 041449001289, or the Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake 3.5lb. bag with a best by code between April 27, 2018 and April 28, 2018 and a UPC code 041449001487, you're being asked to call Continental Mills Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-457-7744 for a full refund. You're also being asked to throw away the products.
