Continental Mills/FDA

TUKWILA, WA (WCMH) — Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix is being recalled from stores because it may be contaminated with E.coli 0121, according to a press release from Continental Mills.

The recall involves 28oz packages of Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix with best by dates between 3/30/2018 and 6/16/2018 with a UPC code 041449001289, and 3.5lb packages of Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix with best by dates between 4/27/2018 to 4/28/2018 with a UPC code 041449001487.

Although most strains of E. coli are harmless, others can make you sick. E. coli O121 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. Seniors, the very young, and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

Customers who have purchased these products should discard any unused portions and contact Continental Mills at 1-800-457-7744 for information about a full refund.

Continental Mills ­­said that a supplier informed the company that blueberry nuggets used in the pancake mix could contain flour recalled by General Mills due to the presence of E. coli.
