The FDA published an update on the investigation of multiple brands of apple cinnamon fruit pouches due to Elevated Lead Levels. As of December 19, 2023, FDA has received 69 complaints/adverse events reported from several states: AL (1), AR (1), CA (1), CT (1), FL (1), GA... See More (2), IA (1), IL (3), KY (3), LA (4), MA (3), MD (6), MI (3), MO (1), NC (5), NE (2), NH (1), NM (1), NY (8), OH (3), PA (1), SC (2), TN (1), TX (3), VA (2), WA (3), WI (2), WV (1), Unknown (3), mainly affecting children under 6. Report Date Ranges: October 17, 2023 – December 14, 2023.

Following a series of complaints, an investigation was launched to determine the cause of the sicknesses. Laboratories found a common link among the victims – elevated blood lead levels. This led the investigating team to the Austrofoods facility in Ecuador, where affected products were sourced. A lead contamination was detected in the cinnamon used in the production of apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches under the WanaBana, Schnucks, and Weis brands. While the products were distributed nationwide, additional recalled items reportedly reached markets in Cuba and the United Arab Emirates.

The affected products are:
- WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches. They were sold nationally and are available through multiple retailers including Amazon, Dollar Tree, and other online outlets.
- Schnuck brand cinnamon-flavored applesauce pouches and variety pack. They were sold at Schnucks and Eatwell Markets grocery stores.
- Weis brand cinnamon applesauce pouches (i.e., specific lots of UPC 041497216123). They were sold at Weis grocery stores.

The CDC's National Center for Environmental Health is working with state and local health departments to identify cases related to the consumption of recalled WanaBana, Schnucks, or Weis brand fruit puree products. The CDC's case definition includes a blood lead level of 3.5 µg/dL or higher measured within 3 months after consuming the recalled products. As of December 15, the CDC has received reports of 67 confirmed cases, 122 probable cases, and 16 suspected cases, totaling 205 cases from 33 states. It's important to note that the CDC and FDA use different data sources, and the reported counts may not directly match. Additionally, some individuals may be reflected in both agencies' numbers, so the figures should not be combined.

Upon discovering the lead contamination, immediate actions were taken to prevent further illnesses. The primary cause was traced back to Negasmart, an Ecuador-based ground cinnamon supplier to Austrofoods. Notably, however, Negasmart was found not to distribute any products directly to the United States. In response to the situation, WanaBana voluntarily recalled all Apple Cinnamon Fruit Puree Pouches, regardless of expiration date or lot code. Schnucks and Weis incorporated similar measures for certain cinnamon-flavored applesauce pouches.

The FDA, working collaboratively with Ecuadorian officials and health authorities, continues to monitor the situation closely while maintaining ongoing checks for imported cinnamon from certain countries. In the meantime, consumers are urged to avoid purchasing or consuming the recalled fruit puree products.

If you or your child are experiencing symptoms after eating this product it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist seek medical attention.

Update November 30, 2023

On November 30, 2023, Austrofood and Wanabana USA issued a joint statement revealing the firm’s leading hypothesis that the cinnamon, supplied by Negasmart in Ecuador, is the source of contamination.

As of November 30, 2023, there are 57 adverse events reported from several states: AL (1), AR (1), CA (1), CT (1), FL (1), GA (2) IA (1), IL (2), KY (3), LA (4), MA (3), MD (4), MI (3), MO (1), NC (5), NE (1), NH (1), NM (1), NY (8), OH (2), PA (1), SC (2), TN (1), TX (3) VA (1), WA (3), mainly affecting children under 5.

Update November 16, 2023

As of November 16, 2023, there have been 34 reports of illness potentially linked to recalled products submitted to FDA from several states: AL (1), AR (1), CA (1), CT (1), FL (1), IL (1), LA (3), MD (2), MI (1), MO (1), NC (5), NE (1), NH (1), NM (1), NY (4), OH (1), PA (1), SC (2), TN (1), TX (1), VA (1), WA (1), Unknown (1). Report Date Ranges: October 17, 2023 – November 15, 2023. FDA is continuing to evaluate incoming adverse reports of illnesses.

Samples of WanaBana, Weis, and Schnucks fruit puree pouches without cinnamon and not part of the recall have shown no elevated lead levels. The FDA suspects that the recalled pouches were contaminated with lead from cinnamon, but hasn't tested the cinnamon yet. The FDA is working with Ecuadorian authorities to investigate the cinnamon source and is screening incoming cinnamon shipments from various countries for lead. The investigation is ongoing to identify the contamination point and any additional products linked to illnesses. Currently, there are no reports of illnesses or elevated lead levels from other cinnamon-containing products. The investigation is ongoing

November 13, 2023

The FDA and other health agencies are currently investigating multiple brands of apple cinnamon fruit pouches due to Elevated Lead Levels. To date, 7 sick children have been reported linked to the consumption of these products from several states ( Arkansas (1), Louisiana (1), Maryland (1), Missouri (1) North Carolina (2), Unknown (1)). Report Date Ranges: October 17, 2023 – November 1, 2023. These products were distributed Nationwide in the US.

In an ongoing investigation that began in late October, the FDA in collaboration with North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and other related agencies, have identified an alarming connection between the consumption of WanaBana Apple Cinnamon Fruit Puree and high blood lead levels. This probe was significantly initiated after 4 children showed elevated blood lead levels indicative of serious acute lead toxicity. Following this, subsequent lab testing has discovered high concentrations of the toxic lead in the tested WanaBana apple cinnamon puree pouches.

Further investigation into the outbreak has been handed over to FDA’s Coordinated Outbreak Response & Evaluation (CORE) Network to collaborate with state officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Two additional brands of products are also subject to recall: certain Schnucks cinnamon-flavored applesauce pouches and variety pack and certain Weis cinnamon applesauce pouches.

The affected products are:
- WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches. They were sold nationally and are available through multiple retailers including Amazon, Dollar Tree, and other online outlets.
- Schnuck brand cinnamon-flavored applesauce pouches and variety pack. They were sold at Schnucks and Eatwell Markets grocery stores.
- Weis brand cinnamon applesauce pouches (i.e., specific lots of UPC 041497216123). They were sold at Weis grocery stores.

Do not eat, sell, or serve these products. WanaBana LLC has voluntarily initiated a recall of all their apple puree products, regardless of the expiration date and lot codes. Furthermore, products like Schnucks and Weis brand cinnamon applesauce pouches have also been recalled. The FDA continues the investigation to identify the source of the lead contamination and whether further products are linked to this outbreak. Updates will be provided as they become available.

Primary symptoms of short-term exposure to lead toxicity include headaches, abdominal pain, and anemia among others; while longer-term exposure can escalate to fatigue, difficulty concentrating, tremor, and weight loss. Parents and caregivers are advised to be aware of these symptoms in children, who are particularly susceptible to lead toxicity.
