Duncan Hines recalls some cake mixes because of salmonella concerns

WASHINGTON — Duncan Hines has recalled certain cake mixes because of salmonella concerns.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website,  Conagra Brands is working with health officials after a positive finding of salmonella in a retail sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix that might be linked to a salmonella outbreak under investigation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA.

Conagra has voluntarily recalled Classic White cake mix and three other varieties made during the same time period: Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti and Classic Yellow.

The FDA says there have been five occurrences of illnesses because of salmonella.

It also said several of the individuals reported eating a cake mix at some point before becoming ill; some also might have eaten the products raw and not baked. Consumers are reminded not to do that, the FDA says.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA, which also says healthy people infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

According to the release from the FDA, the products covered by the recall were distributed for retail sale in the U.S. and limited international exports.

No other Duncan Hines products or Conagra Brands’ products are impacted by this recall.
