Dun­can Hines cake mix pulled from store shelves

The News-Times - - NEWS - By Amanda Cuda

Sal­monella fears are prompt­ing Con­a­gra Brands to pull some Dun­can Hines cake mix from shelves.

The com­pany an­nounced this week the ac­tion was in con­nec­tion with find­ing sal­monella in a re­tail sam­ple of Dun­can Hines Clas­sic White cake mix that may be linked to a sal­monella out­break be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Pre­ven­tion and the U.S. Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Though it has not been defini­tively con­cluded that the prod­uct is linked to the out­break and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still on­go­ing, Con­a­gra is re­call­ing the clas­sic white mix and three other va­ri­eties (Clas­sic But­ter Golden, Sig­na­ture Con­fetti and Clas­sic Yel­low) made dur­ing the same time pe­riod.

Five oc­cur­rences of ill­nesses due to sal­monella are be­ing re­searched by CDC and FDA as part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Sal­monella is an or­gan­ism which can cause se­ri­ous and some­times fa­tal in­fec­tions in young chil­dren, frail or el­derly peo­ple and oth­ers with weak­ened im­mune sys­tems.

Sev­eral of the in­di­vid­u­als re­ported con­sum­ing a cake mix at some point be­fore be­com­ing ill, and some may have also con­sumed the prod­ucts raw and not baked. Con­sumers are re­minded not to con­sume any raw bat­ter.

A com­plete list of re­called mixes is avail­able at https://bit.ly/2Qn­jBt7. Con­sumers who have pur­chased the items are ad­vised not to eat them and to re­turn them to the store. Con­sumers with ques­tions should call 888-299-7646 or visit www.dun­can­hines.com.
