Conagra Brands, Duncan Hines’ parent company, is reportedly cooperating with the FDA and the CDC.
As a result of the investigation, Conagra says it has also recalled three other varieties (Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti, and Classic Yellow) of cake mix that were made during the same time period.
Several of the affected individuals may have consumed the products raw, according to the FDA. Reminder: Never eat unbaked batter, even if you haven’t added any eggs to your cake mix. The products are often made with eggs or flour, which can carry bacteria that is harmless when baked.
