article imageGeneral Mills pulls Betty Crocker cake mixes in U.S. and Canada

By Karen Graham     Jul 12, 2016 in Food
With the announcement of an international recall of certain Betty Crocker cake mixes due to possible E. coli contamination, General Mills is again warning consumers to not ever eat raw batter or dough.
This recall, issued Monday afternoon, applies to Betty Crocker cake mixes sold in the U.S. and in Canada. It is just the latest in a growing list of secondary recalls linked to an ongoing 21-state E. coli O121 outbreak that has sickened 42 people since December 2015.
General Mills owns the Betty Crocker brand and dozens of other brands of consumer products. General Mills distributed the recalled flour nationwide to retailers, restaurants and bulk buyers, including other food producers. General Mills flour has also been recalled in China.
In a news release, General Mills said one of its suppliers recently notified the company that it had used Wondra flour implicated in the July 1, 2016, recall to produce flavor bits it sent back to General Mills for certain Betty Crocker cake mixes.
Betty Crocker cake mixes now under recall in the United States and label information that can be used to identify them are:
