What’s the problem?
November 7, 2018 – FDA announced Monday that it was working in conjunction with with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to investigate a positive test for salmonella identified in a sample taken from Duncan Hines Classic White Cake Mix.

Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Duncan Hines Cake Lawsuits Opposed to a Class Action
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Duncan Hines cake mix recall class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members who have been diagnosed with a food poisoning illness.
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Duncan Hines Cake Mix Recall lawsuits on their behalf.
