Several varieties of Duncan Hines cake mixes have been recalled after a sample tested positive for salmonella that may be linked to an outbreak currently being investigated by the CDC and the FDA. 

Conagra Brands is voluntarily recalling the following varieties of Duncan Hines cake mix:

  1. Classic White
  2. Classic Butter Golden
  3. Signature Confetti
  4. Classic Yellow

Those varieties were all made during the same time period as the sample that tested positive for salmonella. 

So far five people have reported falling ill with salmonella after eating cake mix. 

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. 

The following products and "used by" dates are included in the recall:
