Lead Poisoning & Product Liability Lawyers in New York

Wanabana, a children’s food retailer, issued a nationwide recall on their apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches due to elevated levels of lead being present. Vulnerable populations, like young children and pregnant women, who consume this product could develop acute lead poisoning.

The FDA issued an advisory letter encouraging parents and caregivers to not buy Wanabana’s recalled products.
