Why is WanaBana Brand Fruit Puree Being Recalled?

Lead has been detected in WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches, available at various national retailers, including Sam’s Club, Amazon, and Dollar Tree, as per the FDA.

“Parents and caregivers of toddlers and young children who may have consumed WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches should consult their child’s healthcare provider regarding a blood test,” advised the FDA.

WanaBana’s apple cinnamon fruit puree, analyzed in multiple lots, showed “extremely high concentrations of lead,” prompting a voluntary recall of all pouches, regardless of expiration, as confirmed by the FDA. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services advises disposal of these products if in households. Exposure to lead, particularly in children, poses serious health risks, affecting the brain, nervous system, growth, and development. Even low levels of lead can impact intelligence and academic achievement. The FDA is collaborating with state officials to remove all contaminated products from the market.

The FDA’s announcement about elevated lead levels in WanaBana’s baby food products has sparked concern among parents nationwide. Lead exposure in children can have severe consequences on their developing brains and nervous systems. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, AWKO is taking a stand to support affected families.
