June 2006 makes it 6 years over the time you should have used it by. Seems like it should not look so good, or taste weird by now.
If it looks OK, and tastes like flour usually does, I would go ahead and use it. I presume, you stuck you hands into the flour bag and ate what stuck to them, when your mother was baking when you were a kid like I did, so you know what uncooked flour tastes lik.
