General Mills Inc. is recalling two flavors of Betty Crocker cake mix sold in the U.S. and one flavor sold in Canada because they use flour that was recalled earlier because it could contain E. coli.
The flavors include Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix, which is called Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix in Canada.
In the U.S, the mix carried a Package UPC 000-16000-40997 and “better if used by dates” including 25MAR2017, 28MAR2017, 27APR2017, 28APR2017, 23MAY2017, 24MAY2017, and 25MAY2017.
The U.S. recall also includes Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix with UPC 000-16000-40987 and “better if used by dates” including 12APR2017, 13APR2017, 14APR2017, 28May2017, 29May2017, 30MAY2017, 07JUL2017 and 08JUL2017.
In Canada, the Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix has a Package UPC of 000-65633-46589 and “better if used by dates” of 27AL2017, 08JN2017 and 09JN2017.
The Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix and the Carrot Cake Mix were recalled on Monday. The company noted that “A General Mills supplier used Wondra flour implicated in the July 1, 2016 recall to manufacture the flavor chips used in [these] recalled cake mix flavor[s].” The July 1 recall was an expansion of a May 31 recall of flours that may have been linked to an E. coli outbreak. The outbreak sickened 38 people in 20 states, half of whom said they had recently been cooking with flour. About half of those people identified General Mills brands, Wondra, Gold Medal and Signature Kitchens.
