The recalled products include Classic White, Classic Butter Golden, Classic Yellow and Signature Confetti cakes mixes, Conagra Brands said.
U.S. health officials are investigating a salmonella outbreak in which five people have become ill. Some said they ate a cake mix before becoming ill, and some may have eaten raw batter. Consumers are reminded not to eat any raw batter.
The recalled cake mixes should be returned to place of purchase. For more information, consumers can call Conagra at 1-888-299-7646, 9 a.m. to 5 pm EST, Monday through Friday, or go to the company's website.
Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
