Two food recalls affecting products available in the Cayman Islands are under way – General Mills flour and Waitrose Yeo Valley Yogurt.
The General Mills recall, first announced in late May because of concerns over e-coli, was expanded last week following four new confirmed illnesses in the United States involving people who had handled or eaten uncooked dough or uncooked batter made from raw flour.
No illnesses have been connected with flour that has been properly baked, cooked or handled.
The company is urging customers not to consume uncooked products made from raw flour.
General Mills has added new flour production dates to the list of products being recalled.
Previously announced recalled flour production dates ranged from Nov. 4, 2015 through Dec. 4, 2015. The expansion of the dates includes select production dates through Feb. 10, 2016.
The recalled products include Gold Medal Wondra, Gold Medal All Purpose Flour, Gold Medal Unbleached Flour, Signature Kitchens All Purpose Flour Enriched Bleached, Signature Kitchens Unbleached Flour All-Purpose Enriched and Gold Medal Self Rising Flour.
Foster’s Food Fair IGA said in a press release that its stores have removed the affected products from shelves, and informed customers who bought the affected products that they can return them for a full refund.
A selection of Waitrose Yeo Valley Chilled Yogurt products have also been recalled because of possible contamination with rubber pieces.
Affected products that were available at Foster’s in Cayman include: Waitrose Scottish Raspberry Yogurt 150g and Waitrose Deliciously Fruity Yogurt Strawberry & Raspberry 125g, with best before dates of July 30 to Aug. 15.
The store said in a statement that those products have been removed from the shelves.
