Conagra Recalls Cake Mixes Due to Salmonella Concerns

Conagra Brands-owned Duncan Hines issued a recall for four types of cake mix products after investigators from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) positively identified Salmonella Agbeni in a retail sample of one of the products, the FDA announced Monday. 

FDA investigators matched a Salmonella-tainted sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix provided by officials from Oregon with CDC samples of Salmonella collected from five people who recently became ill using Whole Genome Sequencing DNA analysis. 

Conagra’s recall includes Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix, the variety that originally tested positive for Salmonella, and Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti, and Classic Yellow products produced at a Conagra manufacturing plant. 

The FDA said it is investigating the production plant where the cake mixes are produced, including collecting environmental and product samples. 

Products involved in the recall were shipped to retailers in the U.S. and a limited amount was exported internationally.
