Latest outbreak information: 17 people infected with the outbreak strain of _E. coli_ O26 have been reported from 8 states. Illnesses started on dates ranging from 11 Dec 2018 to 18 Apr 2019.

Three hospitalizations and no deaths have been reported. Epidemiologic and laboratory evidence indicates flour is a likely source of this outbreak.

On 13 Jun 2019, King Arthur Flour, Inc., a customer of ADM Milling Co., announced a recall of 14 218 cases of 5-lb. King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour because the flour may be contaminated with E. coli.

On 23 May 2019, ADM Milling Co. and ALDI recalled 5-lb. bags of Baker's Corner All Purpose Flour sold at retail locations in several states because it may be contaminated with _E. coli_.

This investigation is ongoing. The FDA is working to determine whether other brands or lots of flour may be potentially contaminated and need to be recalled. The CDC will provide updates when more information is available.
