5. FDS wants to limit arsenic in baby rice cereals The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is concerned about the potential health risks from arsenic in infant rice cereals. In 2016, an analysis linked relatively high levels of inorganic arsenic in pregnant women, which could be the cause of adverse pregnancy outcomes and decreased cognitive performance in children. The agency tested 76 samples of infant rice cereals and found that only nearly half met the proposed inorganic arsenic limit of 100 parts per billion (ppb). More than three-quarters of the samples had levels at or below 110 parts per billion. (today.com)
