Urgent Recall: Elevated Lead Found in Popular Children’s Fruit Puree Pouches, FDA Warns


Share post:

Raleigh, North Carolina – In a joint investigation, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services have unearthed alarming levels of lead in WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches, sparking a nationwide voluntary recall backed by the FDA. 

The agency launched a probe into four cases of elevated blood lead levels in children, pinpointing the fruit puree as the common denominator. Sold extensively across various retailers, including Amazon, Sam’s Club, and Dollar Tree, the FDA strongly advises parents and caregivers against feeding this product to toddlers and young children.

The signs of lead exposure, often subtle, range from headaches and abdominal pain in the short term, to fatigue, muscle aches, and more grave symptoms over a prolonged period. Parents are urged to contact healthcare providers for a blood test if their child has consumed the product.
