      Hi, I am the proprietor of the company.

      This is an unnecessary warning, this is not a recall! This batch was released from our company last May, 5 months ago in a perfect condition and haven’t any complaints. The health department picked up a bag from only one market that bought few packets from this batch 5 months ago and stored it in a non controlled temperature environment and after all this hot summer period he put it in shelves few weeks ago. The health department has found and withdrawn just 8 packets of this batch from this market only cause he haven’t found other packets in other markets as the rest was already bought and consumed months ago in a perfect condition.

      In fact the health department told us that there weren’t any complaints about our product and the same market itself admitted that all his flour and even foreign flours were withdrawn cause of same problem.

      …. So how you can say that this is a recall from our side, this is NOT JUSTICE!!!
