FDA Proposes New Limits For Arsenic In Apple Juice

ATLANTA (WAOK) – The Food and Drug Administration is proposing a new limit on arsenic in apple juice. The proposal comes nearly two years after TV’s “The Dr. Oz Show” claimed that arsenic levels in apple juice were too high. The new standard is ten parts per billion. That’s the level the Environmental Protection Agency considers safe for drinking water. This is the first time the FDA has set a limit for arsenic levels in food.
