Conagra, the parent company of Duncan Hines, just announced it's recalling four types of its boxed cake mixes due to a salmonella outbreak. The FDA reports that it "worked with Conagra Brands to initiate a voluntary recall of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix," as it's currently investigating five salmonella cases that have been linked back to that specific mix.
