Consumers Union presses FDA to end delays in limiting Arsenic Exposure through Food, Beverages

 

Consumers UnionWashington, D.C. – Consumers Union, the public policy and advocacy division of Consumer Reports, today sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to express “deep concern” about the delays in the FDA’s work to limit consumers’ exposure to arsenic through food and beverages.

The group wrote, “We strongly urge the Agency to do all it can to ensure the release of its final guidance on arsenic in fruit juice so that consumers can begin to reduce their exposure to this contaminant.  We also urge the Agency to publicly release the results of its arsenic testing of 1,000 rice and rice product samples.  The release of these data will add to our understanding of consumer exposure to arsenic in rice, and we hope that it will also form the basis for FDA action to reduce the amount of arsenic in our diets.” «Read the rest of this article»
