FDA sets new arsenic standards for apple juice
After more than a year of public pressure, the FDA announced it is setting new limits on the level of arsenic allowed in apple juice.
The agency is targeting inorganic arsenic, which is also found in pesticides.
Now, apple juice will have the same limits for inorganic arsenic as drinking water.
The FDA is not recommending any change in how much juice you drink and emphasizes the data shows it is safe for children and adults to drink.
