WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal health regulators are setting a new limit on the level of arsenic allowed in apple juice.
The Food and Drug Administration's action follows more than a year of public pressure from consumer groups worried about the contaminant's effects on children.
The new limit will be 10 parts per billion. The old "level of concern" was 23 parts per billion in apple juice.
