FDA Alert Concerning Certain Cinnamon Products Due to Presence of Elevated Levels of Lead

The US Food and Drug Administration has expanded its investigation into tainted cinnamon products, and its experts now say that the lead contamination extends beyond the cinnamon applesauce pouches that were recalled in October.

The agency said Wednesday that expanded testing has identified several brands of ground cinnamon with elevated levels of lead.

Although the levels of lead found in the ground cinnamon products are far lower than what was found in some cinnamon applesauce pouches, the agency is advising consumers that prolonged exposure to these products may be unsafe.
