Announcement

Consumers reminded not to consume uncooked cake batter or raw flour products

MINNEAPOLIS – Out of an abundance of caution, two flavors of Betty Crocker cake mix sold in the U.S. and one flavor sold in Canada 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 mixes are included in this recall.

Two flavors of cake mix — Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix (called Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix in Canada) and Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix — have been added to the recall as they contain flavor chips (or bits) produced using Wondra flour, which was included in General Mills’ previous July 1st recall announcement. General Mills continues to collaborate with health officials to investigate a multistate outbreak of E. coli O121 connected to several brands of flour.

This recall applies only to the specific product and date codes listed below.

The affected Betty Crocker cake mixes sold in the U.S.:

Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix
Package UPC 000-16000-40997
Recalled Better if Used by Dates 25MAR2017, 28MAR2017, 27APR2017, 28APR2017, 23MAY2017, 24MAY2017, 25MAY2017
Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix
Package UPC 000-16000-40987

Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix
Package UPC 000-65633-46589
Recalled Better if Used by Dates 27AL2017, 08JN2017, 09JN2017

If you possess any products included in this recall, they should be thrown away. A full list of retail products included in the flour recall can be found at http://www.generalmills.com/flour .

Guidance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to be that consumers should refrain from consuming any raw dough or batter products. E. coli O121 is eliminated by heat through baking, frying, sautéing or boiling products. All surfaces, hands and utensils should be properly cleaned after contact with flour, batter, or dough.

Although most strains of E. coli are harmless, others can make you sick. E. coli O121 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. Seniors, the very young, and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

Anyone diagnosed by a physician as having an illness related to E. coli O121 is also urged to contact state and local public health authorities.

U.S. consumers with questions or requesting Betty Crocker replacement product should contact General Mills at 800-230-8103. Canadian consumers with questions about the Betty Crocker products including in the recall, or requesting replacement, should contact General Mills Canada at 800-526-4579. Additional recall information can also be found at http://www.generalmills.com/flour .

Lakewood, NJ – No illnesses have been reported.

Seattle, WA (June 24, 2016) - National Frozen Foods Corporation is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Not-Ready-To Eat frozen green peas and frozen mixed vegetables because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes , an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Following cooking preparation instructions on the labels will effectively reduce the risk of exposure to this bacterium.

This press release does not include recalled products distributed to foodservice accounts in bulk containers and recalled products distributed to food service accounts in Canada and Japan.

The frozen green peas and frozen mixed vegetables are being recalled as a precaution with the health and safety of consumers as top priority.   The recall was the result of a sample tested by the company which revealed that the finished products may potentially be contaminated with the bacteria.  The Food and Drug Administration has been made aware of this recall.  There have been no reported illnesses attributed to the recalled items to date.

The products being recalled listed below were distributed in retail stores nationwide between September 2, 2015 and June 23, 2016.

The recalled items can be identified by the date codes printed on the back of the retail sized bag or the side of the master case.  Only the following codes are affected by this recall:
