There are now almost two dozen children with reported adverse effects linked to applesauce pouches that have high levels of lead.
The 22 children impacted live across 14 states, with the state of residence for one of them being unknown.
There are recalls for four products related to the illnesses:
Recalled WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches
Recalled Schnucks-brand cinnamon-flavored applesauce pouches and variety pack
Recalled Weis-brand cinnamon applesauce pouches
Funny thing(below not my goat)
My grandson has been dealing with low level lead poisoning for 3 years. It’s finally under control and we firmly believed it was from apple products.
Had him at his pediatrician few weeks back and we discussed how great he is doing etc…I said it was the apples…
She looked at me like I was bat shit crazy…
Guess who called me this morning after seeing this on the news!
