Thousands of bags of soy flour from Thumb Oilseed Producer's Cooperative have been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration due to possible Salmonella contamination.


The recall affects 2,623 40-pound bags and 1,500-pound totes of soybean flour, plus 924 .08-ton loads of bulk soy meal, according to the FDA. The soy flour was distributed under the names “Nex Soy” and “Soy Beginnings” to a limited group of wholesale customers in Illinois, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, New Hampshire and Canada from November 2010 through September 2011. Thumb Oilseed has contacted those customers, and no illnesses have been reported to date.
