Study finds arsenic in some foods

Researchers at Dartmouth College have found high levels of arsenic in some organic foods containing brown rice syrup.

Food products such as organic baby formula, cereal bars, and energy shot drinks made with brown rice syrup were found to have arsenic levels above the federal limits for drinking water. There are no laws restricting the amounts of arsenic allowed in food products.

Inorganic arsenic, like the kind found in the foods tested, is a known carcinogen that can cause cancer. Infants that consume baby formula with high levels of arsenic could suffer from lower intellectual functions and lower IQs.

If you or a family member has been sickened by a defective food product or defective food container, contact the defective food products lawyers at the Steinberg Law Firm by calling 843-720-2800.
