    Three of the products included in the General Mills recall expanded Friday.

    Federal health officials on Friday widened an already big recall of flour after four more people got sick from food poisoning linked to the flour, NBC News reports.

    No one has died or developed the most dangerous symptoms from the E. coli infections, but 42 people have become ill from the General Mills flour, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said.

    The CDC said health officials have found harmful E. coli 0121 strains in General Mills flour collected from the homes of ill people in Arizona, Colorado, and Oklahoma. On Friday, the CDC said Indiana has been added to the list of states with ill people. 

    The General Mills recall covers types of Gold Medal Flour, Gold Medal Wondra Flour, and Signature Kitchens Flour.
