Your Blueberry Pancake Mix Could Have E. Coli


You can now add pancake mix to the growing list of food the FDA is warning customers about. Continental Mills said that there could be E.coli linked to the flour they use in their Krusteaz Light & Fluffy Blueberry mix. The result? A mass recall of 30 million pounds of the mix nationwide.

That’s enough to make about 800 million pancakes.


While there have been no reported illnesses tied to the pancake mix so far, the recall is part of a much larger recall of products containing General Mills flour. So far the flour has left 42 people in 21 states sick.

The recall affects two sizes, both of which were produced between April and June of this year. The first is 28-ounce cartons with best-by dates that run between March 30, 2018, and June 16, 2018.  Three-and-a-half-pound bags with a best-by date of either April 27 or April 28, 2018 are also part of the recall.

This comes after the FDA announced that eating raw cookie dough, and other foods with raw flour could be potentially harmful and leave people at risk of E.coli and other harmful bacteria.
