NEW YORK — After a previous voluntary recall of several kinds of flour, General Mills announced Monday they are expanding the recall to include more types.

Four illnesses have been reported and health officials found they were connected to use and consumption of raw cookie dough made with General Mills raw flour.

E. coli has been found in more tests of General Mills’ flour and some of it has been linked to illnesses from flour that was not part of previous recalls, according to a news release.

The new types of flour in the latest expanded recall have production dates through Feb. 10. Previous production dates for recalled flour ranged from Nov. 4, 2015, through Dec. 4, 2015.
