Wegmans recalls flour over small plastic balls

Wegmans Food Markets has recalled its house brand of flour because it may contain small, blue polyurethane balls.
The supermarket chain says the 5-pound bags its All-Purpose Bleached Flour may contain the balls, which are part of equipment used to sift the flour. The company says they’re made of food-grade material that doesn’t contaminate the product and are easily seen because of their bright color and size, about half the diameter of a dime.
The flour was sold between Dec. 24 and Feb. 15. Company officials didn’t initially return messages Wednesday seeking information about whether the balls have caused any physical problems among consumers.
