SEATTLE (AP) - A third Washington state resident has been sickened in an outbreak of E. coli linked to a newly expanded recall of General Mills flour.

The Seattle Times reports (https://goo.gl/qhyr3b ) that General Mills on Friday recalled an additional 20 million pounds of Gold Medal and other brands of flour. The Minneapolis-based company on June 1 recalled 10 million pounds of its Gold Medal.
