Wanabana LLC. Issues Voluntary Recall of Apple Cinnamon Fruit Puree Pouches

November 16, 2023

WDA is working with retail outlets to ensure product is off of shelves. If you have it in your home, please make sure to discard it and do not consume recalled products.

On October 31, 2023 issued a voluntary recall of Wanabana Apple Cinnamon Fruit Puree and Schnucks and Weis Cinnamon Applesauce pouches due to high concentrations of lead.  

The recalled fruit pouches were distributed nationwide Dollar Tree stores and other outlets. All Wanabana Apple Cinnamon Fruit Puree and Schnucks and Weis Cinnamon Applesauce pouches are included in this recall.

The Wyoming Department of Agriculture Consumer Health Services division was contacted by the FDA recently to help ensure the product has been removed from retail outlets. WDA is working with retail locations to confirm these products have been removed from shelves. The retail locations were previously notified by their distributor and pull the recalled product from retail store shelves. Consumers should not eat, sell, or serve recalled WanaBana, Schnucks, or Weis-brand apple cinnamon pouches and should discard them. These products have a long shelf life so consumers should check their homes and discard these products.

Lead exposure can negatively affect a child’s intelligence, ability to pay attention, and academic achievement. Exposure can lead to effects like damage to the brain and nervous system, slowed growth and development, learning and behavior problems, and hearing and speech problems. Most children have no obvious immediate symptoms of lead exposure. If there’s suspicion that a child may have been exposed to lead, parents should talk to their child’s healthcare provider about getting a blood test. Also, contact your healthcare provider if you thing you may have symptoms of lead toxicity after eating recalled fruit pouches.
