Odd Coloring in Milk Gravy

I've had an odd occurrence this morning. Using ground beef to make milk gravy (SOS), I noticed some reddish/brown/golden coloring in the gravy. I have NEVER seen this happen before, and I've made a lot of this.

I use Gold Medal flour, 100% Homogenized milk, and the grease from the hamburger - no spices other than white Morton Salt. I do cook my flour quite a while, but I don't think it's from burning, but then I don't really know.

I'm worried about it, but hate to throw it out if it's just my phobias kicking in.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help.

Flour will brown in a roux depending on how long you cook it, also if you have any fond in the bottom of the pot from browning the beef that would add to the color of the sauce. Do you think this is maybe what you're seeing?

I don't know what the problem was. I bought some new flour and milk, made more gravy and it turned out fine. Thanks for the try.
