Recalls over Contaminated Flour Increasing


Most recently Brand Castle LLC of Bedford Heights, OH recalled their range of brownie mixes because flour supplied by ADM Milling was contaminated with E. coli O26.  The source of the contaminant in flour has yet to be defined but it is evident that a single flour mill producing a large quantity of ingredient can be responsible for extensive contamination in the downstream commercial chain.  A similar effect has occurred with contaminated spices and coating mixes used to produce IQF chicken products.
