The products, manufactured at ADMs flour mill in Buffalo, New York, have best used by dates of December 2 and December 3, 2019.

Aldi has since removed these products from store shelves.

Consumers are being urged to discard or return the flour to the store for a full refund - and not to eat any raw products made with flour.

At least 17 people have been sickened in eight states from December 2018 through April 18, 2019.

The CDC says there have been three hospitalizations, but no deaths have been reported.

The products were distributed in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia.
