(CNN) — Four kinds of Duncan Hines cake mixes have been recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.

Conagra Brands voluntarily issued the recall.

The recalled cake mixes were distributed nationwide and to some international exporters. They are all 15.25 oz boxes of mix.
  • The recalled white cake mix has best if used by dates of March 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13, 2019 and the UPC code 644209307500.
  • The recalled yellow cake mix has best if used by dates of March 9, 10, 12 and 13, 2019 and the UPC code 644209307494.
  • The recalled butter golden cake mix has best if used by dates of March 7, 8 and 9, 2019 and the UPC code 644209307593.
  • The recalled confetti cake mix has best if used by dates of March 12 and 13, 2019 and the UPC code 644209414550.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says te DNA fingerprint found in the cake mix sample matched one linked to five cases of salmonella illnesses.

According to Conagra, several sick people told health investigators they consumed cake mix before their symptoms began.

Salmonella illness usually lasts about 4-7 days, and most people recover without treatment.

As part of the ongoing investigation into the salmonella outbreak, the FDA is inspecting the Conagra facility where the cake mixes were produced.
