You might want to think twice before licking the bowl where you mixed your cake batter. Some 2.4 million boxes of Duncan Hines cake mix have been recalled due to a risk of salmonella poisoning, USA Today reports. The FDA and the CDC are investigating a salmonella outbreak in which multiple people involved reported consuming cake mix before getting sick; some of those people may have consumed it raw, per the FDA.

The agencies found salmonella in one sample from Duncan Hines and as a result parent company Conagra Brands issued a voluntary recall. The mixes affected are 15.25-ounce boxes of Classic White, Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti, and Classic Yellow with Best If Used By dates of March 7-13, 2019. Full information, including UPC codes, can be found at the FDA's website. Conagra notes it "encourage[s] consumers to follow baking instructions provided." (Cake from a ... spray can?)
