This is why you're not supposed to eat raw cookie dough.  It's not so much the raw eggs, but contaminated flour or poor hygiene while preparing it.

Sounds organic!

I'll have 5....

So, I just bought cake mix today because I'm going to try baking one for the first time. As someone who really doesn't know wtf he's doing, it would be nice if they would give a list of brands I need to stay the fark away from.

Rat shiat.  It's rat shiat.  Nobody will admit it, but they just don't give a fark.

Well now how am I going to bake a farty cake?

(Sounds like something from "Bottom" - I can just imagine Rick Mayall saying "farty cake".)

All of them. ALL THE BRANDS. But maybe you will be okay if you cook it according to directions...

The CDC said eight people were interviewed about what foods they ate prior to getting sick, and six of them reported eating or tasting raw batter made using a cake mix. The agency said several brands and varieties of cake mix were bought but didn't identify which brands.

I'm not a diseaseologist, but wouldn't the act of baking the cake kill the E.coli?

Mister Peejay: I'm not a diseaseologist, but wouldn't the act of baking the cake kill the E.coli?


You are right. But Americans are so bad with the whole "delayed gratification" thing, they shove half of the raw cake batter down their throats before the oven has even reached 130 degrees fahrenheit.

Just cook the damned cake and it will be fine. It is only the raw batter that could be contaminated.

Jeez, last week it was muffin mix tainted with listeria. Contaminated baking-mix trifecta coming into play?

This.

Most cereal products have a formal legal limit to the amount of rodent crud they can have in them. Having once had a loaf of bread from a factory with a rodent baked into it (and sliced!), sometimes things get through. Fortunately, I noticed before I made the sandwich. Hurk.

Rodent control solutions had huge influence over civilizations. Rice rats carry hantavirus; they get ate by foxes, hence why rice gods can have fox aspects or fox companions like Inari in Japan and Huxian in China when they act as protector deities. Egypt venerated cats, as people know, but Freyja's also associated with cats (Inari, Huxian, and Freyja are all fertility goddesses), and cats were seen as a vital part of a household in the Norse  world such that a cat could be a wedding gift, and in Celtic homes the presence of a fat cat indicated plenty for more than one reason.

Because farking rodents are farking everywhere. Cook your flour products, y'all, a certain number of producers just shrug the contamination off because 'enh, cooking will kill it, it's fine'.

Multiple brands spread among just 6 people. They're investigating to get more info, but it sounds like just a random data spike.

(to add:) It could be a single factory as the source for all of them, but we don't know yet. Hence the investigation.

Dude... you've never baked a cake? It's hella easy. You'll be fine.

It could be the same facility produces them or they get inputs from the same supplier.

And since most people cook their cakes I could see broad contamination resulting in very few cases.

Not saying it is actually an issue, but it is possible.

That is good. Since there is no evidence of any contamination at this point (six people happened to consume cakes made with different brands of mixes is far from definitive) and if there is contamination, so long as you cook the damned cake you will be fine.

That joke beings back memories. Walking down to the community centre to pick up clean water...

At least enough time has gone by where whenever I say what town I grew up in most people don't respond "the ecoli place" anymore.

Yup.  Our little companions have been reverred for a very long time, likely since the first desert cats realized that the first graneries were happy safe places to live and give birth, with easy food around, about 6000 years ago.  To be honest, if you have ever seen feral barn cats, you can likely imagine the relationship perfectly.  They don't particularly like humans, and disappear if you get close, but they are constantly ghosting around hunting, or after a meal, passed out in a sunbeam (one of the few times you can touch them).  After the first few batches of kittens were born though, and they got used to being touched by humans, the process of semi-domestication began.

The fact that Christians associate cats with Satan says something about Christianity.

Nope, first time. Have baked other things, first time with cake.

it's probably the easiest thing I've made, which means I'll still burn it or something
