According to the FDA, Conagra Brands is collaborating with health officials in connection with a positive finding of Salmonella in a retail sample of Duncan Hines Classic White Cake Mix that may be linked to a Salmonella outbreak that is currently being investigated by CDC and FDA. Five occurrences of illnesses due to Salmonella are being researched by CDC and FDA as part of this investigation.

Several of the sick 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. Consumers are reminded not to consume any raw batter. In general, cake mixes and batter can be made with ingredients such as eggs or flour which can both 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.

If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Duncan Hines branded Cake Mixes, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Cake Mixes to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
