(Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Thursday it had concluded an investigation into a multi-state E.coli outbreak linked to flour produced at a General Mills Inc plant in Kansas City, Missouri.
The outbreak had affected 63 people across 24 states, the CDC said. (http://bit.ly/2cZnTTJ)
General Mills in May issued a voluntary recall of about 10 million pounds of flour and expanded it in July. [nL1N18S1UT]
However, the CDC warned on Thursday that illnesses are expected to continue as flour products have long shelf lives and may still be in people's homes.
