EL MONTE, Calif. (AP) — Two California distributors are recalling preserved fruit products that may contain high levels of lead.

CHO Fuku Group of El Monte says it's recalling 5-ounce packages of Sanh Yuan Preserve Fruit-Preserved Plum that may dose children with 5 ½ times more lead than they should receive.

QFCO, Inc. of Burlingame is recalling Chan Pui Mui Preserved Plum. The recall involves 14-ounce bags with the lot numbers QFC107 and QFC108.

The company says high levels of lead in the product can cause health problems, especially in infants, small children and pregnant women.

The fruit was imported from Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Anyone who bought the fruit is urged to return it to the place of purchase.
