A new study came out Wednesday that said there are potentially cancer-causing levels of arsenic in store-bought apple juice, according to NBC News.
Consumer Reports tested 88 apple juice samples and found 10 percent had total arsenic levels higher than the limit the Food and Drug Administration sets for drinking water, reported Tom Costello.
"Kids have much smaller weights; much smaller bodies," said Consumer Reports Director of Safety Urvashi Rangan. "They don't need that much to reach their daily arsenic limits a day."
The FDA said it would be concerned if the arsenic levels reached 23 parts-per-billion. They are considering a new standard hat will reduce consumer's exposure to arsenic in apple juice.
According to NBC News, the results showed there were not only different levels of arsenic between brands, but also within brands, even bottle to bottle. The tested juices were produced in multiple countries, including the U.S.
