Duncan Hines cake mixes recalled due to Salmonella

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO -- You'll want to check your pantry because Duncan Hines is recalling cake mix because of Salmonella contamination.

Conagra Brands is working with the FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) after a sample of the White cake mix tested positive for Salmonella. The organizations are investigating whether the mix is linked to a current outbreak. While it has not been definitively concluded that this product is linked to the outbreak, Conagra has decided to voluntarily recall Duncan Hines Classic White, Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti, and Classic Yellow out of an abundance of caution since they were all made during the same time period.

Five occurrences of illnesses due to Salmonella are being researched by CDC and FDA as part of this investigation.

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. You should not ever consume raw batter. Cake mixes and batter can be made with ingredients such as eggs or flour which can carry risks of bacteria that are rendered harmless by baking, frying, or boiling. Consumers are reminded to wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after contact with raw batter products, to follow baking instructions, and to never eat raw batter.

The products covered by this recall were distributed for retail sale in the U.S. and limited international exports; you can click here to view the specific product information.
 
Consumers who have purchased these items are advised not to consume them and to return them to the store where originally purchased. Consumers with questions should call 1-888-299-7646, open 8:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday or click here.
