One third of baby rice on sale in British supermarkets contains an unsafe level of arsenic, say researchers.

'One third of baby rice has arsenic'

Extract from the Telegraph:

"It means some children could be getting six times the amount of inorganic arsenic that they should be receiving for their weight and height because the rice is also found in other common foods.

Researchers from Aberdeen University also found high levels of arsenic, which has been found to cause an increased risk of some cancers, in other rice foods, including rice milk and puffed rice cereals.

Prof Andrew Meharg and colleagues tested 17 samples from three unnamed brands of baby rice bought in British supermarkets. He said it was time to re-examine the safe levels of arsenic in food."
