Winn-Dixie said there have been "reports of diseases related to this recall," but Publix urged consumers who bought the affected meal not to consume it.
The US Food and Drug Administration used this recall as an opportunity to remind consumers that "never eat raw dough when making cookies etc." adds that flour can contain bacteria that can cause disease.

The study found coarse dough that was handled or eaten by some of the patients, contained the same bacterium that made people sick – and as a result, 10 million pounds of flour were recalled.
That's because the FDA says it's not just the danger of raw eggs in raw dough that makes consumption dangerous, but also of raw meal.
The grain in the fields can be contaminated with bacteria from animal waste – and ways to kill that bacteria include "cooking, baking, frying, microwave, and frying" the flour.
And don't make homemade cookie dough either, "warns the FDA." If it's your favorite taste, buy commercially produced products. Manufacturers should use ingredients that include processed flour and pasteurized eggs. "
