Consumer Reports has published an article detailing its purported findings from a series of tests on several brands of bottled water, reportedly finding some bottles with levels of arsenic that could be “potentially dangerous to drink over extended periods of time.” Most samples apparently tested below the federal limit of 10 parts per billion (ppb); Peñafiel, a product imported from Mexico, tested higher than 10 ppb but has reportedly been pulled from the market to resolve the issue. Consumer Reports also identified brands that sell water containing levels of arsenic that are legal but above the organization’s recommended limit of 3 ppb.
