The Morrison Milling Company is issuing a recall of their whole wheat flour product due to the potential presence of soft nylon fragments of mesh resembling white hair.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the recall was spurred by a faulty screen at the Morrison Milling Company production facility that could have released soft nylon fragments of mesh into the whole wheat flour product.
The problem was detected by their quality department during a routine check. There have been no complaints to date and no nylon fragments have been found in finished flour product, but the Morrison Milling Company is taking an overabundance of caution. Foodborne foreign agents, like the nylon fragments of mesh, may cause injury including choking.
The recalled products are distributed through retail HEB supermarkets located in the Southwestern region of the United States.
