Aldi and ADM Milling Company, have issued a joint recall for five pound bags of 'Bakers Corner' all purpose flour sold at Aldi stores in 11 northeastern states that may be contaminated with E. coli.
The products, manufactured at ADM's flour mill in Buffalo, have best used by dates of December 2, 2019 and December 3, 2019.
Aldi has since removed these products from store shelves.
Consumers are being urged to discard or return the flour to the store for a full refund, and not to eat any raw products made with the flour.
At least 17 people have been sickened in eight states from December 2018 through April 18, 2019. The CDC says there have been three hospitalizations, but, no deaths have been reported.
The products were distributed in 11 states -- including New York.
