Cake mix recalled due to salmonella contamination


Four kinds of Duncan Hines cake mix have been recalled for possible salmonella contamination.

Conagra Brands voluntarily issued the recall. 

The FDA says the DNA fingerprint found on the cake mix sample matched one linked to five cases of salmonella illnesses.

According to Conagra, several sick individuals told health investigators they consumed cake mix before the symptoms began.

Salmonella illness usually lasts about four to seven days and most individuals recover without treatment.

As part of the ongoing investigation into the salmonella outbreak, the FDA is inspecting the Conagra facility where the cake mixes were produced.

If you have the affected cake mixes, you’re urged to return it to the store where you bought it.
