HEALTH WARNING: WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches may contain lead

October 28, 2023: The FDA advises parents and caregivers not to buy or feed WanaBana apple cinnamon fruit puree pouches to children because the product may contain elevated lead levels. There is no safe level of lead in the blood for children, and even low levels can have lifelong health impacts, including damage to the nervous system and learning, hearing and speech problems. Parents and caregivers of toddlers and young children who may have consumed the product should contact their child’s health care provider about getting a blood test. Read the FDA's alert for more information.

How can I protect myself and others?

  • Get vaccinated.
  • Stay home and away from the rest of your household if you’re feeling sick.
  • Follow public health guidance for gathering safely. This flier is available in many other languages toward the bottom of this web page.
  • Check Washington County's hospital admission rate on CDC's website. With the ending of the federal emergency CDC is now using COVID hospitalizations to calculate community risk. 
  • Follow additional isolation guidance as needed.

What should I do if I have symptoms?

If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you might have COVID-19, follow the steps below to care for yourself and to help protect other people in your home and community.

  • Stay home. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. 
  • Take care of yourself. Get rest and stay hydrated. Take over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, to help you feel better.
  • Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you have trouble breathing, or have any other emergency warning signs, or if you think it is an emergency.
  • Avoid public transportation and ride-sharing.
  • Follow additional isolation guidance.

Masks no longer required in health care settings

While masks are no longer required in health care settings, the Oregon Health Authority is strongly recommending masking in high risk health care settings during the fall and winter when respiratory viruses are at higher levels. Hospitals and clinics will also have masking rules for staff, patients and visitors. People with a cough or other respiratory symptoms are being asked to mask up when getting care. And, of course, if you are more comfortable wearing a mask, we encourage you to continue to do so.
