Many families in Ohio keep juice in their refrigerator as a healthy drink choice. However recent studies show that some juice choices may do more harm than good. This has led to a recent recall of a popular juice brand that has been expanded to include Ohio grocery stores.


Highly Toxic Juice Recall Expands To Ohio Grocery Stores

According to a report from the FDA, a voluntary recall from a popular juice brand has been expanded to include more locations and possible stores. The recall has been issued to retailers that carry one-liter bottles of Martinelli’s Apple Juice. The product is being recalled after samples of one single lot of the juice tested above the FDA guidance level for inorganic arsenic. According to the FDA, exposure to elevated levels of inorganic arsenic can pose health hazards to people including cancer, birth defects, diabetes, and heart issues.
