King Arthur Flour Voluntarily Recalls Certain 5-lb. Bags of Unbleached Flours for Possible Presence of Small Blue Polyurethane Balls

King Arthur Flour recalled a limited number of its bags of flour due to the possible presence of small (7-9 mm) blue polyurethane balls that are used in the sifting process. The balls have a smooth surface and no sharp edges and are made from food grade material. Because of their bright blue color and size (about half the diameter of a dime), they are easily seen in the flour. This voluntary recall is based on the possibility that a ball could be found.


Only 5-lb. bags of King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour and King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour that have particular Best Used By Date and Lot Codes are affected. This information is printed on the side of the bag beneath the nutrition panel. No other lot codes of this product or any other King Arthur Flour products are affected in any way. If the Best Used By Date and Lot Code number are printed on the top of the bag, then the product is not affected.


The following two King Arthur Flour products are included in the voluntary recall: King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, 5-lb. bag, UPC 0-71012-01050-9; and King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour, 5-lb. bag, UPC 0-71012-04105-3.
