Con-Agra Foods Recalls Duncan Hines Cake Mixes


On November 5th Conagra Foods recalled four flavors of Duncan Hines cake mix implicated in a limited outbreak of Salmonella Agbeni.


Oregon State health authorities recently recovered Salmonella Agbeni from samples of cake mix, closely related to isolates derived from five patients in an ongoing outbreak.


In a statement issued by the CDC, the Center is cooperating with state health departments and the FDA to ascertain whether patients consumed cake or raw cake mix under the Duncan Hines Brand.  Antibiotic resistance assays are in progress.


The U.S. plant producing the implicated cake mixes has undergone inspection by the FDA.
