List Of Wines Cited In Lawsuit As Having High Arsenic Levels

Glad my usual wine isn't on this list.

The 83 bottles of wine*cited in a lawsuit this week*as having dangerously high levels of arsenic came from 28 California wineries and were bottled under 31 brand labels. Some of the labels included several types of wine, such as merlot, chardonnay, burgundy and rose.

All that link gives is a list, but my first thought was "well, California". The link within the article ("Lawsuit Alleges...") isn't much more informative. I thought it would compare the acceptable levels with what was found in some of those wines. Nothing. So I went on a web hunt. Thanks for helping me waste time, GG.

I also remembered the kerfuffle about arsenic in apple juice and rice several years ago. Two more FDA links:



The best way to avoid ingesting arsenic? Stop eating and drinking.
