Food Safety Contamination

The Baker’s Scoop HEB 100% Whole Wheat Flour’s 5-pound packages have been recalled due to foreign material found in some of the bags. The foreign matter is described as soft, white, nylon fragments that look a little bit like white hair. The Morrison Milling Company, who produces the flour, says this is likely from a faulty screen at the production plant. The foreign matter in the flour was found during a routine check of equipment and products. [1]

The Morrison Milling Company, located in Denton, Texas, has not reported any illness or injury associated with the foreign object located within the flour. No complaints have been reported thus far. The flours are sold at H-E-B stores in several states throughout the southwestern United States. [2]
