Tests to find arsenic in rice
In Consumer Reports’ recent tests of more than 200 samples of 65 rice and rice products, inorganic arsenic, a known human carcinogen, was found in most of the name-brand and other rice product samples. Levels varied but were significant in some samples.
Earlier this year, Consumer Reports found worrisome levels of arsenic in apple and grape juices and called on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to set limits for arsenic in those juices. Based on its latest findings and analysis, it is asking the government to take additional steps, including urging the FDA to set limits for arsenic in rice and rice products.
