MINNEAPOLIS (KKTV) - Check your pantry: Your flour might be under recall.

General Mills announced Monday it was recalling some of its 5-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached All-Purpose Flour after E. Coli was detected in a sample of the product.

The company says it has not received any reports of illness but is voluntarily recalling the product "out of an abundance of care."

The recall only affects the above flour with a use-by date of Sept. 6, 2020. No other flours in the Gold Medal line are affected, including Gold Medal Unbleached All-Purpose Flour with a different use-by date. Consumers should throw out the recalled product.

The strain of E. Coli potentially in the flour is one that can make people extremely sick, and in some cases cause death.
