Title: Arsenic In Rice
Post by: luvbirds on November 10, 2013, 02:49:22 PM
Hi All
I'm in Canada and we've been hearing about the FDA concerns about arsenic levels in rice. If the levels are so high they don't recommend small children consuming rice milk how safe is it for our pets? It's in dog and cat food and parrots are smaller so the levels would be worse. I use Lundberg Farms organic rice from California and it's worse in the brown than white. I try to use their brown rice pasta etc. and the levels are even higher in it.
