FDA(CHICAGO) — Conagra Brands, the company behind Duncan Hines desserts, is voluntarily recalling four kinds of its cake mixes after health officials found salmonella in a sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix.
The contaminated sample may be linked to a salmonella outbreak currently being investigated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration.
Both agencies are looking into five cases of illnesses due to salmonella. According to the FDA, “Several of the individuals reported consuming a cake mix at some point prior to becoming ill, and some may have also consumed these products raw and not baked.”
In addition to recalling the Classic White cake mix, Conagra is also recalling three other Duncan Hines products — Classic Butter Golden Cake, Signature Confetti Cake and Classic Yellow Cake — out of an abundance of caution. All four cake mixes were made during the same time period.
Consumers are advised not to consume the cake mixes and return them to where they were purchased.
