WanaBana Recall Their Apple Cinnamon Fruit Purée Pouches due to Elevated Lead Levels
WanaBana USA has issued a nationwide recall for WanaBana Apple Cinnamon Fruit Purée pouches due to reports of elevated levels of lead found in certain units of the product.
Lead Toxicity Risks and Symptoms
Lead is a toxic metal that can harm people of all ages and health conditions. It is particularly dangerous for children, as it can cause irreversible damage to their developing brains and bodies. Children may not show any obvious symptoms of lead exposure, so it is important to get them tested if you think they may have been exposed. Lead poisoning can only be diagnosed through a blood test. While symptoms vary depending on the severity of exposure, short-term exposure to lead can cause the following:
- Abdominal pain/Colic
Long-term exposure could result in additional symptoms:
- Muscle aches or muscle prickling/burning
- Occasional abdominal discomfort
- Difficulty concentrating/Muscular exhaustibility
- Weight loss
