General Mills is concerned that a certain batch of its Gold Medal flour brand may be tainted by E. coli and they have issued a nationwide recall.

The flour in question is 5-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour, reports NJ.com. The recall affects bags with a 'better if used by date' of Sept. 6, 2020, and a UPC code of 016000 196100.

The E. coli bacteria can cause severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting, and, in some cases, fever, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

If you find yourself in possession of one of the recalled bags of flour, you're encouraged to dispose of it, or call General Mills at (800) 230-8103.
