Dunkin Hines is recalling four varieties of its cake mixes due to a potential presence of Salmonella.  In a company announcement, Conagra Brands announced that it is working 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. 

It has not been concluded that the product is linked to the outbreak, however, the company has voluntarily recalled Classic White cake mix, Classic Butter Golden cake mix, Signature Confetti cake mix and Classic Yellow cake mix made during the same time period out of an abundance of caution, said the company.

The company stated that several of the individuals reported consuming a cake mix at some point prior to becoming ill, and some may have also consumed these products raw and not baked. 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. they said. They recommend not consuming any raw batter.  In the release, the company reminded consumers  to wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after contact with raw batter products, to follow baking instructions, and to never eat raw batter.

According to health officials, Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis
