Stryker Recall Ignites Artificial Hip Litigation Nationwide

September 17, 2014  ·  By HM&M


The discovery of higher concentrations of inorganic arsenic found in certain infant formulas, cereal bars and high energy foods has prompted Dartmouth College researchers to call for regulatory limits on arsenic levels in foods.

Based on the Dartmouth College study, high levels of arsenic may be found in food products which list organic brown rice syrup as an ingredient. Organic brown rice syrup is used as an alternative to high fructose corn syrup. Rice can be a major source of inorganic arsenic.

Additionally, a report last year found that arsenic levels in certain fruit juices exceeded the federal limits set for arsenic levels in drinking water.

As a products liability attorney in Chicago, I advise consumers, particularly parents purchasing infant formulas, to avoid products with organic brown rice syrup until health officials and researchers can fully address these concerns related to arsenic levels.
