General Mills recalls Betty Crocker cake mix


General Mills Inc. is recalling two flavours of Betty Crocker cake mix, one of which is sold in Canada.

Both are being recalled because the mixes include a type of flour that may contain E.coli.

The flavour is called Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix, with a UPC of 000-65633-46589 and “better if used by dates” of 27AL2017, 08JN2017 and 09JN2017.

Canadian consumers with questions about the Betty Crocker products including in the recall, or requesting replacement, should contact General Mills Canada at 1-800-526-4579.
