Dahboo77 reports on yet another stanza of the song that we're hearing regularly in the news lately: Massive food recall due to some safety issue.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVwAfrZaKO8

This time it's 14,000 cases of King Arthur flour, allegedly due to E. coli.

This is becoming increasingly suspicious.

First, it would be exceedingly difficult for such a microbe to survive in that dry an environment in enough quantity to do harm, especially to a functioning adult GI tract.

Secondly is the timing issue.  Just as we're on the brink of a massive global famine that is likely to begin showing up within months from now, wouldn't the story be more credible if they simply stated outright that wealthy PTB are taking today's dollars, which will be worth less tomorrow, and purchasing commodities at today's less inflated prices, likely placing them in cold storage underground somewhere?

Perhaps the flour will be used exclusively for their own consumption, or perhaps it will be trotted out a few years down the road in a profound shortage and sold for a fortune, making the investor rich beyond his wildest dreams.

Incidentally, King Arthur is the one commonly available commercial brand that produces high-quality organic unbleached pastry flour for people who are slightly choosier and more health-conscious, so once again one detects a discriminating clientelle here...

Alternative theories are welcome!  :)

R.R. I think your theory is probably right.
Ecoli in this flour does seem unlikely and -
I can see how some people would like to stockpile it, because they can.

RR, I agree with Barb, in that your idea is probably right on.  Besides the fact that E.Coli is usually not found or worrisome in such dry foods, the other issue is that people use flour for baking. 

I know of no recipe I've ever used that calls for raw flour that is never baked or heated in some way.  So, even if E. Coli were present, once the flour is made into loaves and baked, the E. Coli would not survive the heat.  Yes, that "story" doesn't seem legit.

Dave Dubyne made the comment that 2019's corn acreage planted has been the lowest ever recorded in the history of the U.S., even 15 million less than in 1938 when the global population was only 2.21 billion.  As the #1 corn producer in the world, the U.S. has traditionally been expected to feed both itself and others via exports.

There are 7.7 billion people on the earth now in 2019.

So the population in 1938 was only 29% of today's population, and the amount of corn planted this year would not have even been enough to feed those alive back in that era.

Wow, food for thought.

An even scarier thought is that Dave's comment only applies to corn planted this year.  Since the final harvest tallies remain to be seen, and since much of the corn was deliberately planted on water-logged ground in order to qualify for crop insurance (knowing the crops would fail), the situation could prove to be even more dire than he is stating.

It does get worse, doesn't it?  Even if everyone had planted with the idea of actually harvesting a good crop, weather--even in good times--is never reliable.  So nowadays, it's even less reliable, so acres planted will always be greater than acres harvested.  Tighten our belts everyone.
