Cases of the recalled Pillsbury flour -- each of which contains about 8 bags that weigh 5 pounds each -- were mostly sold to Publix and Winn-Dixie supermarkets, FSIS said. The recalled cases have best if used by dates of either April 19, 2020, or April 20, 2020.

What’s the problem?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted a notice about the Pillsbury Flour Recall on Monday; however, the agency listed the action as a Class II Recall, which means that it is monitoring the situation but has not issued a formal alert.
This is at least the second major recall issued for flour products this year. In January, Gold Medal recalled 5-pound bags of its unbleached flour with a sell-by date of April 20, 2020.
Most people with a salmonella infection, or salmonellosis, develop varying degrees of the following signs and symptoms 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria:
- Abdominal cramps
Salmonellosis typically lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.
In some people, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized.
