Arsenic Found in Rice

Consumer Reports found arsenic, a known carcinogenic, in 200 different rice products that are sold in grocery stores in the United States alone.

This was reported to pressure the FDA to set standards for safe food supplies.

Arsenic was found in baby cereal, rice cakes and bags of rice.

Arsenic is found in many of the soils where rice is produced.

Arsenic can also be found in water supplies.
