• 1-lb. packages of ‘Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 93% LEAN | 7% FAT’ with ‘Use by’ dates of 10/02/2018.

Based on the continuing investigation, additional product from other companies may also be recalled.

Duncan Hines Recall

 

November 07, 2018
Conagra Brands is collaborating with health officials in connection with a positive finding of Salmonella in a retail sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix that may be linked to a Salmonella outbreak that is currently being investigated by CDC and FDA. While it has not been definitively established that this product is linked to the outbreak and the investigation is still ongoing, Conagra has decided to voluntarily recall the specific Duncan Hines variety identified (Classic White) and three other varieties (Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti and Classic Yellow) made during the same time period out of an abundance of caution.
Cake mixes and batter can be made with ingredients such as eggs or flour which can carry risks of bacteria that are rendered harmless by baking, frying or boiling. The Duncan Hines Cake items were produced from March 7, 2018 through March 13, 2018. The products have a shelf life of 12 months. All product on the affected lots are to be destroyed.

Pinnacle Brands and AFS apologize for the inconvenience this action may have caused.

 

Consumer Information

What Do Consumers Need To Do?
The FDA is advising consumers not to bake with or eat any recalled cake mix. If already purchased, consumers should throw it away or return to the place of purchase for a refund.
Consumers should always practice safe food handling and preparation measures. It is recommended that they wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot, soapy water before and after handling food.
FDA offers these tips for safe food handling to keep you and your family healthy:
• Do not eat any raw cake mix, batter, or any other raw dough or batter product that is supposed to be cooked or baked.
• Wash hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after contact with flour and raw batter or dough products.
•  Keep raw foods separate from other foods while preparing them to prevent any contamination that may be present from spreading. Be aware that flour or cake mix may spread easily due to its powdery nature.
