Four Duncan Hines cake mixes recalled, possibly linked to Salmonella outbreak

The Center for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration are investigating a  Salmonella outbreak caused possibly by certain Duncan Hines Cake mixes.  The company that owns Duncan Hines products, Conagra Brands, is collaborating with health officials in connection with a positive finding of the bacteria in a retail sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix.

The federal agencies are researching five occurrences of illnesses due to Salmonella.  Several individuals reported eating a cake mix at some point prior to becoming ill and some may have also eaten the cake mix raw and not baked.  As a precautionary measure, Conagra is voluntarily recalling Duncan Hines Classic White and three other varieties (Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti and Classic Yellow) made during the same time period.

The recalled products were distributed for retail sale in the U.S. and limited international exports; the specific product information is listed below.   No other Duncan Hines products or Conagra Brands’ products are impacted by this recall according to the FDA website.
