Four types of Duncan Hines cake mixes have been voluntarily recalled over the potential risk of salmonella contamination.
During an investigation into a salmonella outbreak, the Food & Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found salmonella in a sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix.
As a result, Duncan Hines has voluntarily recalled about 2.4 million boxes of cake mix, including Classic White and three other varieties (Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti and Classic Yellow) made during the same time period out of an abundance of caution.
All of the cake mixes, sold in 15.25-ounce packages, had Best If Used by Dates on the top box of March 7-13, 2019.
Each had a different UPC code:
• Duncan Hines Classic White Cake (644209307500)
• Duncan Hines Classic Yellow Cake (644209307494
• Duncan Hines Classic Butter Golden Cake (644209307593
• Duncan Hines Signature Confetti Cake (644209414550)
Consumers who have bought the mixes are advised not to consume them and to return them to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions can call Conagra Brands at 1-888-299-7646, between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday or visit www.duncanhines.com.
