These Betty Crocker Cake Mixes Are Being Recalled Over E. Coli Concerns
Certain varieties of Betty Crocker-brand cake mix are being recalled because of E. coli concerns.
The move is an expansion of General Mills’ (GIS) flour recall, which Fortune had reported at the end of May. Wondra flour, which had been named in that recall, was used in three Betty Crocker cake mixes, Food Safety News reports.
Only three flavors are affected—two in the U.S. and one in Canada. According to General Mills’ press release, the two mixes being recalled in the U.S. are Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix and Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix. The one flavor being recalled in Canada is called Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix.
No illnesses have been reported to the company in connection with the potentially harmful cake mixes, and no additional Betty Crocker or General Mills products have been affected. General Mills’ flour recall is linked to an outbreak of the potentially deadly bacteria E. coli O121 that has so far spanned 21 states. Since December, 42 people have fallen ill.
A spokesperson for General Mills told Fortune that retailers were notified about the recall on Monday, and the affected Betty Crocker products should be removed from shelves quickly.
