Duncan Hines cake mix recalled due to salmonella outbreak


On Monday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a Duncan Hines cake mix recall on four types of cake mix due to possible salmonella contamination.

The parent company Conagra Brands recalled Classic White after it had tested positive for salmonella, so it also recalled Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti and Classic Yellow out of caution, all made during the same time period. Roughly 2.4 million boxes of cake mix were recalled in total.

The mixes have “best if used by” dates between Mar. 7, 2019 and Mar. 13, 2019. 

The FDA advises consumers who purchased the mix to throw it away or return it to the store for a refund, as well as clean any surfaces that may have touched it.

Five cases of salmonella are being investigated, and several other people have reported consuming a cake mix at some point prior to becoming ill.

Conagra is working with the FDA on this recall to ensure the packages are removed from store shelves.
