FDA Investigating Recalled Duncan Hines Cake Mixes Potentially Linked to Salmonella Agbeni Illnesses

Nov 06, 2018 | Michelle Shapiro

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating the manufacturing facility that made recalled Duncan Hines cake mixes.

FDA and the CDC informed Conagra Brands that a sample of Duncan Hines Classic White Cake Mix that contained Salmonella Agbeni matched the Salmonella collected from ill persons reported to the CDC. This was determined through Whole Genome Sequencing, a type of DNA analysis.

Based on this information, Conagra Brands is working with FDA to proactively conduct a voluntary recall of Duncan Hines cake mixes from the market. The FDA is conducting an inspection at the Conagra Brands-owned manufacturing facility that produced the cake mixes. The FDA is also collecting environmental and product samples.

Recommendation:

Consumers should not bake with or eat the recalled product. Additionally, consumers should not eat uncooked batter, flour, or cake mix powder.
