The FDA became aware of an issue with the apple cinnamon fruit pouches after four children were discovered to have elevated blood lead levels. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services examined multiple lot codes of the pouches and found very high lead concentrations. The FDA looked over the state department’s analytical findings and determined they could cause acute toxicity. The agency told the manufacturer that the pouches were a potential source of lead exposure. For its part, the manufacturer agreed to a voluntary recall once the FDA’s investigation found that all lot codes and expiration dates were affected. The pouches are sold across the country and are made available at retailers including Dollar Tree, Amazon, and Sam’s Club.
The company told the public that it is dedicated to making sure its products are safe. It also told consumers to stop using the product. It’s important to retain the pouch, if you can, when your child has symptoms of lead exposure, in case it’s needed for a product liability lawsuit.
