Update on the investigation of elevated lead & chromium levels in Cinnamon Applesauce Pouches (November 2023)

As of March 26, 2024, the FDA’s CORE Network has reviewed 90 confirmed complaints/reports of adverse events potentially linked to recalled products. CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health is conducting case finding efforts in collaboration with state and local health departments. As of March 22, CDC has received reports of 136 confirmed cases, 345 probable cases, and 38 suspected cases for a total of 519 cases from 44 different states plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico through their reporting structure.  CDC and FDA have different data sources, so the counts reported by each agency will not directly correspond. In addition, some people affected by the contaminated product might be reflected in both the numbers reported by the FDA and the numbers reported by the CDC, so the numbers should not be added together. @ https://www.fda.gov/food/outbreaks-foodborne-illness/investigation-elevated-lead-chromium-levels-cinnamon-applesauce-pouches-november-2023?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
