I have never heard of any. Properly cared for, these pans will last "forever." Before vitamin supplements became common, people's main source of dietary iron came from the iron that would transfer to the food from these pans. Mostly that is a concern when making highly acidic dishes (such as things containing tomatoes). Otherwise I have not seen any risks associated with these pans--and the iron transferring into the food would not be a problem for most people as the amount is quite minimal.
