Thank you for posting this Pete. I sent it out to my family.

FDA has confirmed that the lead and chromium previously detected in the cinnamon are from lead chromate. People who ate recalled products, especially if they had elevated blood lead levels, may have been exposed to chromium and should inform their healthcare provider so they can monitor health and provide supportive care, as needed. Healthcare providers can refer to CDC’s Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA Now) announcement for information for additional guidance.

 

Historically, lead chromate has been illegally added to certain spices increase to their weight and enhance their color, which increases the monetary value of the adulterated spices. FDA’s leading hypothesis remains that this was likely an act of economically motivated adulteration.

The brands are:

  • La Fiesta, lot 25033, sold at La Superior SuperMercados
  • Marcum, best by 10/16/25 and 4/06/25, sold at Save A Lot
  • MTCI, sold at SF Supermarket
  • Swad, lot KX21223, sold at Patel Brothers
  • Supreme Tradition, best buy dates from 4/25 through 9/25, sold at Dollar Tree and Family Dollar
  • El Chillar, F275EX1026 and D300EX1024, sold at La Joya Morelense in Baltimore, Maryland

 

The concentrations of lead in the ground cinnamon products ranged from 2 to 3.4 parts per million, according to the FDA; the concentrations of lead found in the cinnamon applesauce pouches were thousands of times higher: between about  2,300 parts per million and about 5,100 parts per million.

=================

 

5100ppm is 0.51%, a not insignificant increase in weight when talking about tons of product sold.

 

 

I do have to wonder how most of the recalled product is under 5 ppm but that cinnamon applesauce is over 3000 ppm in the finished product.
