schumer calls for clear juice concentrate standards

schumer calls for clear juice concentrate standardsfrom fox 23 news: U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today called on the FDA to put in place clear standards for imported fruit and vegetable juice concentrates and step up inspection of concentrates from countries that use toxic, inorganic arsenic in their pesticides, or with high levels of environmental contaminants. Schumer pointed out that, although serious questions exist over the methodology used by a daytime talk show last week that covered the subject of arsenic in apple juice, there currently are no FDA standards for toxic, inorganic arsenic in juice concentrates.
