On Monday, Duncan Hines recalled four of its cake mix flavors after the FDA found salmonella in a sample of the product.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Salmonella affects about 1.2 million people per year.
Side effects of salmonella include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever.
Duncan Hines is recalling four of its cake mixes, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
On Monday, Conagra, the parent company of Duncan Hines, voluntarily recalled its Classic White, Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti, and Classic Yellow mixes after traces of salmonella were found in a sample of the Classic White cake mix.
The FDA explained that the Classic White Cake Mix is not the definitive source of the salmonella outbreak. Nonetheless, Conagra chose to recall the above products voluntarily, as they were made at the same time as the Classic White Cake in question. The FDA is continuing to investigate the case.
