It depends what you are making. Are you sure it just says mixed spice?

I just had a thought. Are you sure that when you scroll down there isn't a separate recipe for the "spice mix"? That is often how it's done for marinades, sauces and spice rubs or mixes.

If you're talking about "mixed spice" used in traditional English baking (think Hot Cross Buns) then pumpkin pie spice is probably the closest to it you'll get in the States.

I just googled "mixed spice". It pulls up quite specific recipes from the UK.

I believe "mixed spice" is an actual product in the UK. As Anne mentioned, "pumpkin pie spice" may be the closest to it in the US. But there is one brand of "mixed spice" available on Amazon. Read the associated comments.

Like "pumpkin pie spice" here, mixed spice is a product readily available labled as such in the UK (and to a lesser extent in former British colonies like here in Canada). Different brands will have variations in exactly what spices and what proportions they contain. It's like a "secret sauce" of traditional British baking. Everyone has their favourites.
