The producers of Pillsbury Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, used by many home bakers, have voluntarily recalled 12,245 cases sold to retailers, after a random inspection revealed traces of salmonella in one bag.

The cases, each of which contains about eight five-pound bags, were mostly sold to the Publix supermarket chain and to Winn-Dixie markets, both of which have branches throughout the Southeast. The cases have best if used by dates of either April 19, 2020, or April 20, 2020.

The Food and Drug Administration posted a notice on its Twitter and Facebook accounts Monday. But a spokesman noted that the F.D.A. had so far identified this as a Class 2 recall, which means that the agency is monitoring the situation but has not issued a more formal alert, because no one has reported becoming ill from the flour.
