In the U.S., General Mills has issued a recall for two types of Betty Crocker cake mix, with an additional variety being recalled in Canada. This action is in response to a large-scale flour recall triggered by an E. coli outbreak, which has resulted in at least 42 individuals falling ill across 21 states.

November 29, 2017 – A nationwide outbreak of E. coli infections that occurred last year has been conclusively linked to bacteria found in raw flour, according to a study published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). The problem with flour may be more common and widespread than originally thought, according to the researchers: “Our data show that although it is a low-moisture food, raw flour can be a vehicle for foodborne pathogens.”

What’s the Problem?

July 12, 2016 – According to a press release issued yesterday by General Mills [1], the 2 mixes affected by the recall 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 in Canada being recalled is:

  • Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix.

Krusteaz Pancake Mix Recall

In addition to the Betty Crocker products, a recall has been issued for the following lots of Continental Mills’ Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix:

  • Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix 28 oz. carton with a best by date code between 3/30/2018 and 6/16/2018, and a UPC code 041449001289, and
  • Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake a 3.5 lb. bag, with a best by date code between of 4/27/2018 to 4/28/2018, with a UPC code 041449001487.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with any of these cake mixes, and no additional Betty Crocker or General Mills products have been affected. General Mills’ flour recall is linked to an outbreak of E. coli O121 that has spread so far to 21 U.S. states. Since December, at least 42 people have been severely sickened.

A General Mills spokesman said retailers were notified about the recall yesterday, and the affected products should be removed from shelves quickly. Consumers in possession of affected cake mixes should discard them immediately or return them to the point of purchase for a refund.
