FDA addresses lead being found in ground cinnamon products

Accoridng to the latest reports, in a new safety warning about some contaminated food products, the US FDA was able to find six cinnamon products in the US that contained lead.

According to the data, last autumn, the FDA recalled thousands of cinnamon applesauce products that had lead in them. Following the findings, the agency has implemented some preventive measures in order to ensure that such contaminations are not a threat to the safety and health of people.

Cinnamon is known to have a long shelf life and this means the fact that it’s crucial to check your home supply whenever you purchase affected brands.

According to the data, you should refer to the dates or lot numbers in order to identify the products that are potentially tainted with lead. You can see them below as noted by the online publication The Epoch Times:

These products are usually found at retailers such as the following: La Superior SuperMercados, Save A Lot, SF Supermarket, Patel Brothers, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, and La Joya Morelense.

It is also important to mention the fact that the FDA has recommended that the manufacturers of these cinnamon products voluntarily recall them.
“Food growers, manufacturers, importers and retailers share a responsibility for ensuring the safety of the foods that reach store shelves,” Jim Jones, the FDA’s Deputy Commissioner for Human Foods, stated.

The statement continued and revealed the following:

“The levels of lead we found in some ground cinnamon products are too high and we must do better to protect those most vulnerable to the negative health outcomes of exposure to elevated levels of lead.”
