Cake mix recalled by FDA due to possible Salmonella contamination

A Salmonella outbreak may be linked to the latest voluntary recall of certain Duncan Hines cake mix, according to the Food and Drug Administration, FDA and Conagra Brands. The cake mix recall includes Duncan Hines Classic White, Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti, and Classic Yellow.


A list of the nationally sold recalled products, as provided by the FDA, is shown below:

Five occurrences of the illness due to Salmonella are currently being researched by the CDC and the FDA as part of their investigation of the outbreak.

The announcement from the FDA says, “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.”

The FDA also reminds consumers that ingesting any raw batter is not recommended due to the possibility that ingredients such eggs and flour can carry bacteria if not cooked properly.

The CDC and FDA are advising consumers to check their recently purchased Duncan Hines products to confirm if they have been included in this recall and to throw any affected products away or return them to the place of purchase.

At this time, no other Duncan Hines products or other products associated with Conagra Brands have been affected by this recall.
