General Mills Inc. is recalling two Betty Crocker cake mixes sold in the U.S. and one flavor sold in Canada because they use flour that was recalled 10 days ago because it could contain E.coli, reported The Associated Press.

Continental Mills’ Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix also is affected by the large recall of tainted flour manufactured at a General Mills Facility, reported Fox News.

The possible contaminant is Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC O121), which also may be present in a handful of other previously recalled General Mills flour products, noted Fox News, including Gold Medal All Purpose Flour, Gold Medal Wondra Flour and Gold Medal Self-Rising Flour.

The cake mix flavors include Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix, which is called Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix in Canada, noted the AP The U.S. recall also includes Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix

A General Mills supplier used Wondra flour implicated in a July 1 recall to make the flavor chips used in the recalled cake mix flavors. No illnesses reported to date have been connected to cake mix.

In the U.S, the rainbow mix carried a Package UPC 000-16000-40997 and "better if used by dates" including 25MAR2017, 28MAR2017, 27APR2017, 28APR2017, 23MAY2017, 24MAY2017, and 25MAY2017.

The carrot cake mix carried UPC 000-16000-40987 and "better if used by dates" including 12APR2017, 13APR2017, 14APR2017, 28May2017, 29May2017, 30MAY2017, 07JUL2017 and 08JUL2017.

The FDA said the recall of Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix affected only specific lots, which were manufactured between April 2016 and June 2016, said Fox News. Those products are Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix 28 oz. carton with a best by date code between 3/30/2018 and 6/16/2018, and a UPC code 041449001289; and Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake a 3.5 lb. bag, with a best by date code between of 4/27/2018 to 4/28/2018, with a UPC code 041449001487.
