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.
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 on March 31. The recall was issued after results from routine testing on March 20 showed the possibility of Salmonella in the flour processed on March 16.
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.
There have been no reports of people contracting the bacteria.
