Description

Consumer Reports revealed that arsenic is present in surprising amounts in common food products such as Minute Maid apple juice, Uncle Ben's brown rice, organic rice cakes, and even infant rice cereal. Yet there is no federal limit on arsenic in most foods and juices, although there is for drinking water. And while Food and Drug Administration claimed that the arsenic in apple and grape juice is essentially a harmless form, our tests showed otherwise.
