Betty Crocker has added two more flavors of cake mix to the recall list. Here is their official press release:
Today, out of an abundance of caution, two flavors of Betty Crocker cake mix sold in the U.S. have been added to General Mills’ previously announced flour recall from July 1, 2016. No illnesses reported to date have been connected to cake mix. No other General Mills or Betty Crocker products are included in this recall.
The recalled flavors are: Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix and Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix. A General Mills supplier used Wondra flour implicated in the July 1, 2016 recall to manufacture the flavor chips used in these two recalled cake mix flavors.
General Mills continues to collaborate with health officials to investigate a multistate outbreak of E. coli O121 connected to several brands of flour. Guidance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to be that consumers should not consume uncooked cake batter or raw flour products.
