Ten million pounds of flour are being recalled nationwide from General Mills.

The 10 million pounds of recalled flour is possibly linked to an outbreak of E. coli. Thirty-eight people in 20 states have been sickened. The recall includes nine different flour products, all from General Mills.

Half of the people who became sick said they had made something homemade with flour before being sick.

General Mills says no E. coli has been found in any of its products, but it issued the recall out of precaution.

The company suspects those who became sick may have consumed raw dough or batter, which you should never do.
