Navajo Pride LLC issued a voluntary recall this week for its bleached, all-purpose flour because of possible Salmonella contamination.
The recalled flour is marked with lot No. 075B110064 and is stamped with an expiration date of March 16, 2016, according to a company press release issued on Thursday. The flour comes in 5-pound cloth bags, 25-pound cloth bags and 50-pound paper bags.
Consumers should not use the flour and can dispose of it into the garbage or return it to the point of purchase for a refund, Thompson said.
Thompson said the Navajo Pride, a subsidiary of Navajo Agricultural Products Industry, first issued the recall of 42,175 pounds of flour distributed to retail and wholesale customers in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Utah
Individuals infected with Salmonella may develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps within 12 to 72 hours of exposure, and the illness could last up to seven days, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
