FDA Recommendations

The FDA has cautioned that consumers should not bake with, or eat the cake mixes included in the Duncan Hines recall. Additionally, consumers should not eat uncooked batter, flour, or cake mix powder; and are reminded to wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after contact with raw batter products.

Symptoms of Salmonella

Symptoms of Salmonella infection may include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after they become infected. In some cases, the diarrhea may be so severe that hospitalization is required. In these patients, the Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream and then to other body sites, and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.

The FDA cautioned that young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune system are the most vulnerable stating that “Children are the most likely to get salmonellosis. The rate of diagnosed infections in children less than five years old is higher than the rate in all other people. Children younger than five, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe infections. It is estimated that approximately 400 persons in the United States die each year with acute salmonellosis.”

Salmonella Food Poisoning Diagnosis

If you suspect that you have contracted Salmonella or are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, contact your doctor. He or she can order a stool culture to confirm Salmonella infection. Let your doctor know that you have consumed or handled the recalled cake mixes.
