(AP) — General Mills is expanding its recall of certain types of flour in response to an ongoing outbreak of illnesses related to a strain of E. coli bacteria.

The company on June 1 voluntarily recalled 10 million pounds of its Gold Medal, Signature Kitchens and Wondra flour that health officials say was the likely source of dozens of illnesses in 20 states.

The expanded recall includes flour made earlier in the fall that might still be in consumers’ pantries.
