This morning we’re singing, “Oh we’ve finally learned a recall lies / beyond the yellow brick road…” Yes, friends, General Mills is recalling its Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip cake mix along with its carrot cake mix. In addition to that sadness, Krusteaz pancake mix is also being recalled. Say goodbye to everything you loved about your childhood.
As you may have guessed, this is related to General Mills’ earlier flour recall. The company says, “General Mills supplier used Wondra flour implicated in the July 1, 2016, recall to manufacture the flavor chips used in this recalled cake mix flavor.” You can see all the recalled General Mills products on its website.
As for Krusteaz, Continental Mills is recalling the blueberry pancake mix, but get this — it’s the blueberries that may be contaminated, not the flour. Apparently the blueberry “nuggets” are made with flour from the same supplier, Wondra.
Throw out those mixes, everyone. Maybe this will be the weekend you bake and cook from scratch?
