The excess lead comes from droppers provided by a third-party packaging supplier, a Food and Drug Administration announcement says.

Lead is a toxic substance that can cause adverse health issues when ingested, especially by young children.

Louisiana health officials say most children who have been exposed to lead do not present with any symptoms. However, at increased lead levels, lead poisoning can present in the following ways:

  • Fussiness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of energy
  • Abdominal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Long-term exposure to excessive levels of lead is associated with growth delays, learning disabilities, attention disorders, and behavioral problems
