KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - General Mills says the 10 million pounds of its flour recalled over a possible link to an E. coli outbreak in 20 states largely was produced at the company’s Kansas City, Missouri, plant.

But company spokesman Mike Siemienas says the E. coli strain hasn’t been found in any General Mills flour products or at the Missouri site.

The recall announced Tuesday is for several varieties of Gold Medal and Signature Kitchens flour that were sold at Safeway, Albertsons and other supermarkets.

The company said 38 people were sickened from mid-December through May 3. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that half of the people used flour before getting sick, some of it a General Mills brand. General Mills said some also may have eaten raw dough or batter.
