Arsenic limits Bill

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A BILL to limit the amount of arsenic in juice is to go before US lawmakers. The Arsenic Prevention and Protection from Lead Exposure in Juice (APPLE Juice) Act of 2012 has been introduced by New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone and Connecticut Congress-woman Rosa DeLauro, in response to recent news coverage about the presence of arsenic in children’s apple juice (FOODNEWS passim) . If it passes, the FDA would have two years to establish the standards; it currently has arsenic limits for drinking water but not apple juice. In November last year, tests revealed that some apple juice contained more arsenic than allowed for bottled water.
