Officials warn of hazardous fruit
LOS ANGELES, April 3 - The state health department issued a warning Friday about three brands of candied fruits imported from Mexico that may be tainted with levels of lead higher than approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The California Department of Health Services urged consumers to avoid the following brands:
Margarita Tamarindo Pulpa;
Licona Tamarindo Candy;
and Jarrita Chorita Tejocote.
The candied fruits are packaged in glazed ceramic jars, which leached lead into the food; the food also may have been contaminated from outside sources, according to Kim Belshe, director of the health department. Tests showed levels of lead in the products, in some cases, exceeded the FDAs recommended daily limit of 6 micrograms. The state health department asked for the publics help in reporting sellers of the three brands. To report where the products are being sold, call (800) 495-3232.
