A&E Corrales LLC Recalls Saladitos Dried Salted Plums with Chili
A&E Corrales LLC, Seattle, WA is recalling Saladitos Dried Salted Plums With Chili because it has the potential to be contaminated with lead.
Lead is a toxic substance present in our environment in small amounts and everyone is exposed to some lead from daily actions such as inhaling dust, eating food, or drinking water. Exposure to larger amounts of lead can cause lead poisoning. While lead can affect nearly every bodily system, its effects depend upon the amount of and duration of lead exposure and age of the person exposed.
Symptoms can include abdominal pain, vomiting, lethargy, irritability, weakness, behavior or mood changes, delirium, seizures, and coma. However, infants, young children and the developing fetus can be affected by chronic exposure to amounts of lead that may not result in obvious symptoms of lead poisoning. A child with lead poisoning may not look or act sick. Lead poising in children can cause: learning disabilities, developmental delays, and lower IQ scores.
The affected product was distributed nationwide through distributors to retail stores, and online orders on Amazon and company website at spiceandchili.wazala.com from August 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021.
