(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. (

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.
