Bakers, beware.

General Mills has expanded its flour recall to include select boxes of Betty Crocker cake mix.

No illnesses have been directly connected to the mix, but out of an abundance of caution, two flavors of Betty Crocker cake mix sold in the U.S. and one flavor sold in Canada have been added to the list: Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix (called Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Bit Cake Mix in Canada) and Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix.

No other General Mills or Betty Crocker mixes are included in this recall.

A General Mills supplier used Wondra flour implicated in the July 1, 2016 recall to manufacture the flavor chips (or bits) used in these two recalled cake mix flavors.

General Mills continues to collaborate with health officials to investigate a multistate outbreak of E. coli O121 connected to several brands of flour.
